07/22 - History Department Senior Thesis Workshop in Paris.  With support from the President's Global Innovation Fund and in partnership with the Columbia Global Center Paris and the Columbia University Libraries, the History Department has begun a program to enhance the senior thesis by providing support for students doing primary research in European archives.  Seven rising seniors received grants to conduct research on topics ranging from thirteenth century women's religiosity, to fugitive slaves in the Spanish empire, to the 1984-5 British coal miners' strike, to French influences on Allan Bloom (to mention just a few).  After fanning out into archives and libraries in France, Britain, Spain and the Netherlands, the students came together with the program's faculty and graduate student coordinators for a workshop on their early findings and future research strategies at the Global Center Paris on July 16-18.
