Saturday, April 6th

Undergraduate History Conference

Time: 8:30 am-7:00 pm


The 2013 Undergraduate History Conference, presented by students in HIST 394, will take place Saturday, April 6.

Students will present their research projects from 8:30 a.m to 5 p.m. in FH 178 and FH 179, and the keynote address will take place at 5:30 p.m. in FH 118.

Keynote speaker Dr. Kristin Hoganson, a professor of History as well as Gender and Women’s Studies at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will present “Tales of the Berkshire Hog: How an Anglo-Saxonist Pig can Help Us Reconsider the Roots of the Modern American Empire."

This talk takes on the conventional wisdom about the agricultural roots of the modern American empire by focusing on the case of the Berkshire hog. The story of this animal – stretching back to the appropriation of the Indian corn that became the staple of its diet and forward to its role in nourishing British power – helps reposition the so-called heartland at the crossroads of empires. In addition to drawing some conclusions about Anglo-Saxonist pigs, this presentation will include some reflections on picking and pursuing historical research topics. Please contact the History Department for the conference program, so as not to disrupt any presentations.
