Lockridge History Workshop

ken lockridge

Named to honor Professor Emeritus Ken Lockridge, the Lockridge History Workshop meets five times each semester and serves as a venue for graduate students, faculty, and visiting scholars to present works in progress. Articles, chapters, and research proposals (of no more than 35 pages) as well as public and digital history projects are welcome. All papers are pre-circulated, and the format is an open discussion. The sessions provide the department with a venue for intellectual exchange and afford presenters the opportunity to receive valuable, constructive, and friendly feedback on their research and writing projects.

Workshops typically begin at 3:30PM and last about 1 ½ hours. Papers are pre-circulated by email. Contact Kym MacEwan (workshop coordinator) or Professor Kyle G. Volk with any questions or to receive the paper in advance of a workshop session.
