Ever wondered what historians do? Why it might be useful, even valuable, to study history?
So did we.
We are excited to announce that on the 20th of February (that’s a Thursday) in the Campbell Multipurpose Room, we will be hosting the Third Annual History Day. We will explore how historians think about issues of contemporary importance, how those history books you are forced to read come into existence. We will get a taste of what members of the Fordham community – undergrads, graduate students, and faculty members – have done to advance historical understanding. We will learn how history can get you a JOB. We are not kidding about that.
And free food.
