HAPPENING RIGHT NOW: Gabe Paquette History Lecture on Imperialism w/ Really Long Name

William Pinch, Chair of the History Department wrote in a couple of days ago, informing us about a couple of events that are happening in the Department today.

Unfortunately, we totally missed the email ’til right about now, and as such the History Department Open House Pizza Lunch that took place earlier today at noon came and went like an absurd seagull. (Sorry Prof!) Still though, you should totes go tap up Prof. Pinch or any other History professor if you’re interested in the major. Added benefits of being a History major includes: being mad cool, being mad old-school educated, and being mad seksi. But I’m not speaking from experience, so I can’t say for certain.

STILL. There’s one more event for the department THAT’S HAPPENING LIKE ALMOST NOW.

Former Wes Grad and History major, Gabriel Paquette ’99, now Assistant Professor of History at Johns Hopkins University, is here to drop knowledge bombs with a lecture called, “Empire and its Discontents: Regional Rebellions, Slave Revolts, and Political Conspiracies in Brazil, 1800-1850.”

Date:   Feb. 22
Time:   4.30PM – 5:30 PM (ish)
Place:  Albritton 311
