Grads Mentor Undergrads in Digital Research Projects

In Fall 2013, HIST 3959 - How to Do History was taught by Prof. Donna Gabaccia with a focus on digital history research projects. One additional feature of HIST 3959 this fall was that six graduate students earned graduate credit by working with the undergraduate groups as "project managers."

Here is a sample of innovative projects from class:

The Pacific Railroad Surveyors
Jewish Life in 1930s/40s Minneapolis
Why Public Education?
Rustication in the Chinese Cultural Revolution
Early Scandinavian Cartography
Korea, Forgotten War?
Political Leadership and Masculinity

The Department of History is proud to announce that 2 Graduate level and 5 Bachelor level Fulbright Scholarships have been awarded to History students. There were a total of 19 Fulbrights awarded for 2012-2013. Congratulations to all!

He will research the role of the Latin Christian crusader states during the late 13th century in the context of the first Mamluk-Ilkhanid War.

She will particularly focus on the experiences of students from social groups that had historically limited or no access to higher education. Kelley graduated with a B.A. in history from Smith College in 2007.
