A variety of congratulations are in order, as we close another semester at Rutgers University-Camden.
Matt Grace, a History student in our program, has been awarded the Alumni Association Outstanding Graduate Student Award for this academic year. This award caps off quite the year for Grace, who was accepted into the Ph. D. program at the University of Virginia with full funding. Congratulations, and we wish you the best!
Scott Flovin received the first annual award for best research paper at the MA level for his essay titled, “Native Americans, Swamps, and Inferiority Complexes: Hugh Williamson’s Fearful Response to European Nationalism.” An abstract for his paper can be found here.
The History department is conferring 10 Masters degrees this year, which, according to Program Director Andrew Shankman, makes up approximately 10% of all graduate degrees being conferred this year by the college of Arts and Sciences. We offer a hearty congratulations to our graduate students, and we wish you all the best of luck in your post-graduate lives!
