The History Undergraduate Theses in UW Tacoma Digital Commons, administered by Professor Julie Nicoletta, has six new papers that reflect an extensive research project that History majors complete as a part of their educational experience. The topics are both local and international scope, covering relatively recent history to the middle ages.

Congrats to all the students who met the requirements set by the program for openly sharing their work:

A Clear and Present Danger: Portrayals of Destruction in Modern American Cinema before and after the September 11 Attacks by Ember Ashford.

Creating an Indigenous Multicultural Faith: The Russian Orthodox Mission in Alaska and the Centrality of Cosmology by Niklaus von Houck

Mortality and Meals: The Black Death’s Impact on Diet in England by Jessica Cordova

Student work, such as capstones and theses, often make up the majority of titles in the top ten downloaded items in Digital Commons, and some of these may be on their way to being included in this list.

During the summer time, the capstones, theses, and other culminating student work begins appearing in UW Tacoma Digital Commons, the campus digital repository system that collects and makes accessible the scholarly and creative work happening across campus. As these new works become available, will be highlighting these new contributions to the scholarly record on our blog.
