Frances G. Harper Student History Conference
At the end of each fall semester, the Department of History and the College of Liberal Arts host the Frances G. Harper Student History Conference – a venue for history majors to present their junior-senior seminar research projects. Two to three students from each of the four junior-senior seminars taught during the spring and fall semesters are selected by their professors to share their research findings in a formal conference setting. Papers are selected based on topic, originality, argument, quality, and research. The best papers from the conference win cash awards and recognition.
In December of 2022, the 17th Annual Frances G. Harper Student History Conference was well attended and featured ten undergraduate history majors. Congratulations to all of those who presented. Also, many thanks to Dr. Manuel Ramirez, TJ Setter, Diana Gonzalez, Dr. Susan Stanfield, Sam Reitenour, and Rebeca Rivas for helping put the conference together and for judging the competition.

- 1st Place: Kyle Jaquez, “Lázaro Cárdenas: Mending Social and Labor Disputes with Nationalist Discourse”
