HISTORY STUDENTS PRESENT AT CREATE 

 

Eastern History majors have multiple venues in which to show off their research chops. Just a few weeks after the CSU Making History conference, more History majors presented their papers and posters at Eastern’s annual CREATE conference. 

In the second morning panel, four history papers were presented: Martha Ennis presented her paper, “Mexican Migration in Connecticut: Braceros and Beyond” (mentor Dr. Meznar),followed by Cassaundra Epes with her paper, “The Ideal Woman: Sexology, Sex Reform, and Engineering Marriage in Weimar Germany” (mentor Dr. Moore), Craig Hanford with “The Final Expedition of an Old Explorer: The Role of Hiram Bingham in Peruvian identity and the Tourism Gold Mine” (mentor Dr. Balcerski), and, finally, Dana Meyer with “Connecticut Revolutionary War Deserters” (mentors Dr. Ostwald and Dr. Tucker). A lively Q&A followed each presenter’s paper.
