History Hour

The History Department is excited to introduce this new initiative that will take place on Wednesday afternoons. History students and professors will discuss an article or book chapter published by one of our faculty. The conversations will promote further understanding of how historical research is conducted and how the past impacts the present; it will also promote community.
For those interested in participating, please contact the department's administrative assistant Katie Gill. She will provide links to the Zoom chats.
The first History Hour will take place from noon - 1 p.m. Sept. 30. The focus will be Prof. Chad Montrie's article, "'That Very Northern City': Recovering a Forgotten Struggle for Racial Integration in Duluth," which examines 20th-century racial discrimination in Minnesota.
