American Studies seniors will present their research for discussion and questions. American Studies faculty will moderate panels of the presentations. This event is open to all students and faculty.
Every student in American Studies writes a senior thesis on a topic of his or her own choosing. The thesis is the capstone of the major. Students do original research with primary sources and draw on American studies scholarship to develop their own insights and arguments. The range of topics is wide, reflecting the varieties of student interest. As an aid to their scholarship, the Department sponsored event provides students with the opportunity to present their research to an audience of faculty, friends, and their peers. The feedback students receive gives them new questions to ask and scholarly discoveries to make. The event is free. Lunch is provided. No RSVP required.
