Department of History

8 March 2014

Dear UCCS History Students, MA Students, and Alumni,

As we approach the last part of another school year, I wanted to send you a special invitation to a couple of upcoming events organized by the History Department, and featuring/honoring the work of our excellent undergraduate and graduate students. 

First, each year the History Department stages its own celebration of the achievements of our students, where we honor our Outstanding Undergraduate and Graduate Student award winners, outstanding Senior Thesis winners (1 or 2 per section), students who have presented at conferences or had their work published, and students who have worked with community organizations or in public history venues. 

This year the awards ceremony will be on FRIDAY, APRIL 25TH, from 2 – 3 p.m., in University Center 116. All students (undergraduate and graduate) AND alumni are welcome to join us. Refreshments will be served, and we hope to see a lot of you there. 

Second, each spring the History Department hosts a Heller Center Symposium, where the work of students or alumni (or both) are presented in the style of a History conference. This year, the graduate students in Paul Harvey’s Civil War History and Bernice Forrest’s Native American Ethnography seminars will present their research work. This event will be TUESDAY, MAY 6TH, FROM 4:30 – 8:30 P.M., at the Heller Center. You may feel free to come and go as you please and as you have time. Again, all students and alumni welcome. 

Third, on Wed., APRIL 2, 9am-noon at the Heller Center, Drs. Roger Martinez (History) and Colin McAllister (VAPA, Music) have organized a symposium: “Astrology, Anglo-Saxons, and Dissonance: The Idea of Renaissance in Europe from the Ninth to the Sixteenth Century, ” associated with their HUM course. Again, all students and alumni welcome. Please rsvp to Professor Roger Martinez.

We hope you will keep abreast of our events and our student achievements through our History Department Newsletter, this blog, and the History Department website. We have many exciting new projects and initiatives just starting that we hope to share with you in the near future.

Paul Harvey
Chair, Department of History
