Spring Senior Sem Presentations (Round 2)

This past Monday we hosted a second set of presentations by students in the Spring 2013 section of HIS499 Senior Seminar. (apologies to presenters if the titles here — from our original schedule — don’t reflect the final versions you had on screen)

Parker Foss – “The Gospel of Violence: The Worship of Twelfth to Fourteenth Century Knightly Prowess in Chivalric Literature”

Paul Hultgren – “William James and the Legacy of Pragmatism for Gestalt Psychology”

Bjorn Olson – “From Bacon to Bankrupt: The Rise and Fall of the Stockyards”

Anders Larson – “Bring it on Home: How 1960s Britain Got the Blues”

Josiah Gerhardt – “Eisenhower’s Roads: The Local Effects of the National Interstate System”

Michaela Anderson – “Two Sides of a Tarnished Coin: Change in Minneapolis Public Housing”

Joe Held – “The Gears of Public Education: How Charter Schools have Changed the Direction of the Education Machine”

We closed by doing something we’ve done far too infrequently in the recent history of the History Department: posing for a picture with our faculty. Thanks to Annie Berglund and Sarah Ouverson for suggesting this!
