History Showcase 2020
Welcome to the 2020 Department of History Showcase!
The showcase event is an annual celebration of undergraduate research and achievements. Traditionally held as an award ceremony each spring term, this event has served as an opportunity to display history students’ research and to acknowledge those history majors that have earned special awards.
The 2020 virtual showcase continues this tradition of celebration and allows us to reach all members of the University of Oregon community, near and far. Please join us in honoring the accomplishments of our students.
