Registrar description

During the semester, students design an original project and develop a research agenda while pursuing one of two trajectories: 1) Produce a research paper that can become the basis for a published scholarly article or 2) Draft a prospectus for dissertation research. In close consultation with the instructor, students work with each other on different aspects of the research and writing process, including historiographical interventions, source selection, problems of interpretation, narrative, and argumentation.
