101 Circus: Undergraduate History Research Showcase

The History 101 Circus is the great annual gathering at which undergraduate history majors present research from their 101 seminars.*

Each student will encapsulate their research in a 10 minute presentation followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. Past topics have ranged from WWII coffee advertising to the "greatest murder trial in history."

Feel free to come for the whole day of presentations or drop in for one or two. A complete list of topics and presentation times will be available a week before the event.

* History 101 is designed to guide students through the capstone experience of undergraduate education as a history major: the researching and writing of a senior thesis. Successful completion of this challenging but rewarding endeavor requires students to do the work of a historian. Ultimately, this translates to producing a piece of scholarship—in this case a 30-50 page final paper—in which students articulate and defend a historical argument rooted in extensive primary source research, informed by thorough secondary source reading.
