GSW student historians present at Georgia Tech History Conference

Under the mentorship of Susan Bragg, Ph.D., fourteen GSW students traveled to Georgia Tech on April 7th to participate in the 2018 Georgia Regional Phi Alpha Theta history conference. Eight students presented original research essays and another five students traveled with the group to participate as audience members. This event was a great opportunity to talk history with students and faculty members from around the state, while also getting to explore the campus of Georgia Tech.

GSW student research essays demonstrated a wide variety of creative scholarly exploration. Political Science major Joshua Logan presented on “Rousseau and the Effects of Social Media on American Civil Discourse.” History majors Ekeledirichi Kamalu and Jessica Clark focused on 19th century slave narratives, with Kamalu discussing on how these narratives exposed patterns of social control and Clark highlighting trans-Atlantic abolitionist activism. History and Political Science major Terrell Hoffman shared his research on WWII-era pin-up girls, demonstrating a nuanced analysis of how these images reflected social change in the mid-20th c.

Finally, Bragg and History major Jairus Whitely co-moderated a panel of GSW students discussing their research into ONE magazine, a forum promoting LGBTQ rights in the 1950s and 1960s. History major Savannah Ross discussed how the ‘Red Scare’ shaped LGBTQ politics in the Cold War years, while Psychology major Amy Connor drew attention to how ONE magazine provided early support to teenagers questioning their identity in an era that defined homosexuality as dangerous. Caitlin McMillan, a Sociology major, argued that commentators in ONE magazine laid an early foundation for later social activism against LGBTQ discrimination.

In addition to the valuable work done by all these presenters, other GSW participants included Charlon Cochran, Flora Twumasi Ampofo, Sefunmi Adenbanwo, and two students from the English Language Institute: Jian Jung, and GyuBin Choi.

This was the seventh-straight year that GSW students have participated in Phi Alpha Theta regional history conferences and as in such past events, the GSW contingent represented our campus well in all regards.
