Dear UNI HIST students,

I hope this message finds you well as the end of the semester approaches. I have a couple of pieces of info for you as you prepare to wrap up Spring 2021 (you'll want to read all the way to the end):

  • Please join UNI HIST for our final department-sponsored event of the 2020-2021 academic year, next Wednesday's Phi Alpha Theta induction (6:30 pm) and Keynote lecture, provided by UNI HIST MA student Lydia Pakala, "Frank Capra: American Propagandist, 1935-1946" (7:00 pm). Register for the event at  
  • HIST 3159, Fall 2021: The Department of History's newest course, "Conflict and Justice in History," is being offered for the first time by Professor Cutter in the fall (T TH at 2:00). The topic for the course will be "Perspectives on Animal-Human Relations" and will count as 3 hours toward your US History electives. I have worked with the Registrar to have the course automatically coded to US History, so this course will help you make progress toward your degree if you need US history hours. If your US history requirements are already fulfilled, it can also count toward your History Electives. Win-win! (I've had a sneak peak at this course as Professor Cutter has been designing it, and it looks fantastic, so don't miss it!)

Best wishes for success as you finish your semester-long projects and prep for finals. 

Take care,
Dr. McNabb
