THE STERNE-LION COLLOQUIUM
Wednesday, November 6, 2019
Room 289, Student Center
The Sterne-Lion Undergraduate Research Award—generously supported by G. Michael Loewe, a 1973 graduate of Wayne State University who majored in History—provides additional funding for history majors who win one of the university’s coveted Undergraduate Research Opportunity Awards. The additional support provided by the Sterne-Lion Award has enabled undergraduates to conduct research at archives in Great Britain, Austria, Nova Scotia, China, and South Dakota. Thus far, winners have produced excellent research papers and presented their work at the annual colloquium. The Sterne-Lion Award raises the level of undergraduate research and fosters excellence in history education while fulfilling Wayne State’s goal of enhancing undergraduate research.
The 2019 Sterne-Lion Research Scholarship in History recipient is William Weis.
The Colloquium will feature the following presentations:
Kyle Donahue, "The Napoleonic Enigma" (Place Gateway recipient)
Rob Macaulay, "The Descent of Darwin" (Place Gateway recipient)
Leah Warren, "Papers to Posters: How to Display Your Research through a Poster Presentation"
William Weis, "The Legacy of Carolingian Writing in the Later Middle Ages: A Study of Codex 974 at the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek"
