Lockridge History Workshop

ken lockridge

Named to honor Professor Emeritus Ken Lockridge, the Lockridge History Workshop meets five times each semester and serves as a venue for graduate students, faculty, and visiting scholars to present works in progress. Articles, chapters, and research proposals (of no more than 35 pages) are welcome. All papers are pre-circulated, and the format is 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 meets in the History Seminar Room (LA 250) on Friday afternoons at 3:00pm for 1 ½ hours. Please join us!

For more information, contact Professor Kyle G.Volk.
