LOCKRIDGE HISTORY WORKSHOP
Named to honor Professor Ken Lockridge, the Lockridge History Workshop meets at least five times each semester and serves as a venue for graduate students, faculty, alumni, and visiting scholars to present works in progress. Articles, chapters, and research proposals are welcome. All papers will be pre-circulated, and the format will be an open discussion. The sessions provide the department with a venue for intellectual exchange and afford presenters the opportunity to receive valuable, constructive, and friendly feedback on their research and writing projects. The workshop generally meets in the History Seminar Room (LA 250) on Friday afternoons for 1 ½ hours with refreshments provided.
Special thanks to the College of Arts and Sciences and Dean Christopher Comer for supporting our inaugural workshop series in 2011-12.
