Our History Department is kicking off its Fall Semester Talking History series this month. Please note that all HIST 297 students are required to attend at least one session and report back. Feel free to bring a lunch, and learn more about what your History and American Studies faculty do in their research endeavors!
— Please post your flickr photo intro on your own subdomain or subfolder, i.e., your own site for HIST297 rather than you main portfolio / personal page. E.g. You want to have a hist297.susanfernsebner.org or a susanfernsebner.org/hist297 address for our course.

E.g. entering “hist297” for our course would give you a web address of: http://yourdomainname/hist297
