2019 Honours Thesis Night
Honours History Thesis Night
The History Program at Algoma University is pleased to announce our Honours Thesis Night presentation for the 2019 academic year. The papers are based on primary research located within contemporary historical debates and address a stimulating set of topics, selected by students and supervised by program faculty.
Three themes have emerged from this year’s projects: Ancient and Mercantilist Empires, Gendered Contexts, and Cheap Fiction, Wartime Soldiers and Wartime Burials.
We will also celebrate recent good news concerning post-graduate opportunities pursued by this year’s thesis students.
