ULM history department hosts La. Tech representatives for historical studies meeting
The ULM History and Government Department hosted the Louisiana Tech University History Department for the 10th annual meeting of the North Louisiana Collegium of Historical Studies on Feb. 23.
“The purpose of the meeting is to keep the graduate master’s programs in history at both institutions strong and viable,” said Scott Legan, head of ULM’s history department.
At the conference, held in ULM’s Bayou Conference Room, two graduate papers were read: Brian Morrow of ULM presented a paper on "Defeat at Midway: A Comparison of Military Cultures,” while J. Eric Pardue of Louisiana Tech University presented a paper entitled, "With Control and Restraint: Lyndon Johnson and the 1964 Guantanamo Water Cutoff."
In the second session, two members of the faculty of the respective institutions produced papers: Roger Carpenter of ULM presented "Native American Historiography for Survey U.S. History Students," while Jace Stuckey of Louisiana Tech University presented "Medieval Historiography for Survey World History Students." After the dinner, ULM’s Ralph Brown, III presented a paper entitled, "The Freedom of Information Act and Its Uses."
The North Louisiana Collegium of Historical Studies alternates between the two institutions, and serves as an important conduit in exchanging compressed video courses in which students at both institutions enroll.
