Fall History Forum
It looks quite possible that we all three History Forum presentations in 2008-09 will be on Latin America. That likelihood, coupled with our hiring a Latin Americanist, who will also help with a Latin American exhibit at the Todd Madigan Gallery, leads us to dub this next academic year "The Year of Latin America"!
Please join us on September 19, 2008, at 3:30pm in the Albertson Room for first History Forum of 2008-09.
“The Unheard Voice of Law from an Often Heard Text: A New Rendition of Bartolomé de las Casas’ Brevísima Relación de la Destruición de las Indias”
Presented by David Orique, O.P., University of Oregon

Congratulations to all the new grads!
Coming in Fall 2008!
History 240: Survey of Latin American History
"The evolution of Ibero-American societies from ancient Native American cultures through Spanish and Portuguese colonization to nineteenth and twentieth-century nation-states."
This course has not been taught in some years, but we are fortunate to be able to offer it again with the hiring of Lia Schraeder from UC Davis. The course will be held MWF, 10:55am-12:15pm. It is a general education course, fulfilling the Area C-3 requirement, and satisfies the lower-division non-western requirement for the history major. We urge any history majors currently enrolled in HIST 210 (World Civilization I) to enroll in this more narrowly focused course instead.
Emeritus Professor Ron Dolkart and Professor Miriam Raub Vivian
