Undergraduate History Conference, April 7-8.

On Friday, keynote speaker Dr. David Luebke, professor of History at the University of Oregon, will present “Artifacts and Ethics: Representing Violence in the Holocaust Museum” at 5 p.m. in the Native American Forum. Dr. Luebke worked for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., for four years before its opening in 1993, first as a historical consultant, then as a member of the design team for the museum’s permanent exhibition. In that capacity, he was responsible for researching, composing, and editing all textual elements – artifact labels, captions for photographs, and narrative exhibition texts. On Saturday, students will present their research projects; the conference program will be shared next week.
