As all of US see huge changes in higher education from funding to trillions in student loan debt to the hyper focus on "elite" universities to rampant closing of smaller liberal arts colleges, we need to ask ourselves what is the future of education? What degrees are expendable? What degrees truly educate students and prepare us for careers? This is a legit question. Of all majors from mathematics to political science to engineering to English, what is essential? And what of this student's question, what's a university without a history major?"
Greetings! Checking to see if any Professors or Students are planning on attending the American Historical Association conference this coming January 3-6th in Chicago. If so, it would be great to meet and perhaps share a meal. Benjamin Scott MA Student
For anyone in Central Nebraska: This Wednesday, July 12 from 6:00-7:30 pm, is your chance to witness history in action at the Grand Island Public Library. The Hall County Historical Society presents character portrayals of influential figures and events in Grand Island's History. Oscar Roeser (1852-1936), portrayed by his great grandson, Fred Roeser, was an early resident of Grand Island who established the "Bee Hive" Grocery in 1881. Grand Island native author Caroline Converse (1878-1976) will be portrayed by Judy Humiston. Sue Clement will portray Edith Abbott (1876-1957), a Grand Island native, nationally-known human rights activist. Michelle Setlik will portray the mother of 1912 murder victim Goldie Williams, and Jack Mato Cardinal will present a Civil War Narrative.
Thank you Roger Davis for your faithful work as Phi Alpha Theta advisor.
