During senior year, students can explore a topic of interest and distinguish themselves by pursuing honors through completing a thesis. Talk to any history department faculty member or the department head as soon as possible. It is never too early to start brainstorming and planning!
This fall, six students have embarked on thesis projects. They presented summaries of their ongoing investigations on Wednesday December 5th, 2018 at Ramer History House, Rm. 103, 4:10pm-6:00pm.
Here are the presenters and topics:
Khadijah Akeem: The Consequences of War: Women and Children’s Involvement in the Biafra War
Advisor: Professor Christopher Lee
Kamini Masood: ‘Chaadar’ and Chaardivari’: Haseena Moin’s Television Dramas and an Alternate Feminine Consciousness Under Zia’s Regime
Advisor: Professor Rachel Goshgarian
Andrew Mange: Dueling and its Historical Decline in France and the United States, 1700-1900
Advisor: Professor Paul Barclay
Nicole Harry: Soviet Diplomacy and Radio Free Europe in the 1970s
Advisor: Professor Rebekah Pite
Simon Rybansky: “James Morrison Harris: Nativism and the Sectional Crisis in Maryland’s American Party”

and a good time was had by all!
