Megan Keller (Messiah History Dept., 2013), Katie Garland (Messiah History Dept., 2012), and Amanda Mylin (Messiah History Dept. 2012) presented today at the biennial student meeting of the Conference on Faith and History, held at Gordon College in Wenham, MA. Here are my Facebook posts in the wake of their presentations:
I wish I could have seen Katie Garland‘s paper at the Conference on Faith and History student conference, but the session I was chairing convened at the same time. By all reports Katie represented the Messiah History Department (and herself) very well and did a great job. So glad Katie could break away from her M.A. program in public history at UMASS-Amherst to attend the conference.
Amanda Mylin, Messiah College history class of 2012, just delivered an outstanding paper at the Conference on Faith and History student conference at Gordon College. Her paper focused on the politicization of tea in the decade leading up to the American Revolution. The room was filled and Amanda had everyone laughing just by reading from her very entertaining primary sources. After the talk she had a line up of people waiting to talk with her, got a request for a copy of her paper from a senior scholar, and garnered an immediate meeting with a potential graduate school mentor who liked her paper. Wow!
I just watched Megan Keller, senior history major, deliver an excellent paper at the biennial meeting of the Conference on Faith and History at Gordon College in MA. Her paper was focused on the 1936-37 General Motors Sit-Down Strike Great work, Megan! Amanda Mylin and Katie Garland, both Messiah history 2012 graduates, are up later today. Stay tuned. We need more Messiah College history majors at conferences like this!!
