Winter Message from Professor Anand Yang, Department of History Chair.
We had more than the usual to be grateful about this fall.
We rang in the new academic year at our fall reception by commemorating a longstanding friend of the Department (Larry Roseman) who could no longer be with us. We also toasted familiar faces—faculty, staff, students, and History Board members—along with newcomers, especially our incoming class of six graduate students. And we counted our blessings at our annual Access reception, which is always a stellar occasion for faculty and staff to express their appreciation to all the Access students that enroll in our classes.
And there is so much more to come as well: the 2019 History Lecture series that kicks off in January; the many distinguished historians who will be speaking on campus in the coming months; and the annual Awards ceremony honoring our smart and enterprising students. There’s always a lot to savor and to be appreciative of in a department filled with lively and engaged scholars, teachers, and public intellectuals.
