Students & recent alumni to share research at April 26 symposium

Themes include local & medieval history, education & theatre

High school students are among those who may want to attend the UW-Richland Student Research Symposium beginning at 6pm Friday, April 26, in the Pippin Center/Melvill Hall on the University of Wisconsin-Richland campus. The aim of the evening program coordinated by UW-Richland associate professor of history Dr. Aharon Zorea is to give current UW-Richland students and recent alumni an opportunity to present to the public. Their classmates and families are welcome, and others are especially encouraged to attend. Parents of high school students, adults seeking intellectual enrichment, and the curious may want to be there to learn more about student research at the university.

James Minor, an alumnus from La Farge, plans to present “Latin Holding Cultural Exchange,” a medieval European cultural history research project. UW-Richland student Mike Baker, Richland Center, plans a history themed presentation as well, with the focus on local history. Don Hart, and alumnus from Elroy, plans to present a theatre capstone performance review and Kathleen Maloney, an alumnus from Richland Center, will give an education portfolio presentation.

The symposium may also feature research presentations by other alumni and current students. Admission is free. UW-Richland is located at 1200 Highway 14 West in Richland Center. For more details, contact Zorea by email at or by calling the campus at (608) 647-6186, Extension 247.
