IPFW Department of History to Host 9th Annual Undergraduate History Conference

FORT WAYNE, Ind.—The Department of History at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) will host its 9th annual Undergraduate History Conference at the Steel Dynamics Keith E. Busse IPFW Alumni Center (click here for directions) Saturday, February 11, from 8 a.m. until roughly 5 p.m. The event is open to the public but attendance requires an R.S.V.P. The event, including lunch, is free of charge.

"Each year we have held this event has proven to be a great experience for presenters and audience members alike," said Deborah Bauer, assistant professor of history and one of the organizers of the event. "There is no doubt that this year will be equally stimulating!"

This day-long event will feature 19 students, representing over a half dozen majors from across the university, all presenting original research to an audience of students, faculty, staff, and the general public.

Panel discussion topics include:

  • "Genocide, War, and Memory"
  • "Ideals of Revolt and Revolution"
  • "Imperialism and International Diplomacy in the Modern Era"
  • "Contested Identities in the United States"
  • "The Perils of Politics: Social, Legal, and Philosophical Battles from Ancient Greece through Twentieth-Century America"
