From the History Club

Hello everyone!

     I hope everyone is having a great start to their school year. If anyone wants to be removed from the e-mail list just send an e-mail letting us know. First of all I would like to invite you to the first history club meeting which will be held October 3, 2011, 11:30-12:30 in room A143. 
 On Tuesday October 4m 2011, 3:30-6:30 in room A118 we will be holding the annual Meet and Greet. Come out to get to know other history students and meet some of the profs! There will be refreshment serves and games played. 
    Finally, this year's seminar series will be starting on this Friday, September 30, 2011, Room A122, from 2:30–4:00 pm. The Department of History is happy to present Dr. Maartje Abbenhuis, visiting from the University of Auckland (New Zealand), and Dr. Sarah Winters of our own Department of English Studies, in this presentation about the challenges posed by depictions of Nazi figures (and those like them) in various media including film and print. Drs. Abbenhuis and Winterswill talk about their contributions to a recent edited collection entitled Monsters in the Mirror: Representations of Nazism in Post-War Popular Culture (Praeger, 2010) and discuss some of the implications of their research for teaching on Nazi Germany and Nazi themes.
The talk is free of charge, refreshments are provided, and everyone is welcome. Questions may be directed to Dr. Derek Neal <derekn@nipissingu.ca>.
