An Honors thesis marks the culmination of a History major's journey. A research paper, often longer than 100 pages, deeply immersed in primary sources and featuring close analysis and astute synthesis of evidence, every thesis expresses the individual take of a trained and matured scholar.
This academic year saw 10 thesis writers complete remarkable works of scholarship under unusually trying circumstances. Their topics ranged from an interrogation of fragile racial identity in antebellum America to the conundrum of an ex-guerilla's mythos as president of Uruguay to the political dynamics that have generated and continue to generate scholarship in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
