History Honors Conference

Published: May 10th, 2017

Category: Feature, History Department News, Recent News

On Saturday, April 15th, the History Department Honors Program hosted its eighth annual Honors Thesis Conference and Awards Luncheon. In addition to our presenters, we were joined by faculty advisors, librarian, Shelley Arlen, History officers Sean Adams (Chair), Nina Caputo (Associate Chair), and Undergraduate Coordinator (Steve Noll); and friends and family of our honors students. The George Smathers Library generously provided space for the event.

The 2017 conference featured nineteen papers presented in six panels. Our presenters, all of whom completed the Honors Thesis program in History, covered topics ranging from the medieval period to the twentieth century, based on research often conducted on site, in the U.S., Europe, the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. The students gave impressive presentations and the audience actively participated in discussions following each panel.

We are extremely proud of the Honors class of 2017, both for their accomplishments as UF students and their future plans. Alumni of the program will be enrolling in graduate programs at UC Berkeley, Cambridge University, GW University, Boston College, and UF; in law school at Harvard, FSU, UF. Others will be serving in the Peace Corps and the the U. S. Military. Several are becoming teachers and researchers. We wish them all the best in their work and studies.
