HSA Undergraduate History Colloquium

The 2014 Undergraduate History Colloquium will take place on Friday March 28th at 4:30pm – 6:30pm on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueum people.

The colloquium will offer an opportunity to UBC students to exchange ideas and engage with the research of their own peers. The colloquium centres on the projects of six students, some of whom are among the finalists for the forthcoming edition of The Atlas Undergraduate Journal of World History.

Presenters will be reading from their papers on a wide variety of topics, including: stained glass windows, memorials, and sustainability!

This will be an excellent chance for UBC students to hear their fellow peers present and discuss undergraduate research in the History department. The Atlas will also be setting up a booth, where you will have the chance to meet with this year’s Editors-in-Chief and Editors. We look forward to seeing you there!

This event will be catered by Sprouts.
