History 586 - Advanced Seminar in History

 

The collection presented here, posted at the end of each semester, reflects exemplary, professional research and writing, a target goal of the history major at Kansas State University. These essays have passed an outside reader review, a rigorous screening with a rubric, but they also reflect best practice standards of the history profession. All 586 seminars include substantial peer review by other students in the classes. The research project is a semester-long exploration of a topic determined by the professor, based on that professor’s personal expertise. In this way, historians in specific fields guide student research. The topics, research avenues, and use of primary source collections vary widely across time and place, a dynamism showcasing the challenge and potential of history scholarship.
