It is that time of year again…classes at James Madison University start again on August 29. Like the last two semesters, I am taking three courses and I am a Teaching Assistant once again. The courses I am taking this fall include:
-HIST 590 – Gender in Latin America. Instructor: William C. Van Norman
-HIST 600 – Seminar in US History: Early Period. Instructor: Philip David Dillard
-HIST 700 – Thesis Research. Instructor: Christopher Versen
In addition, I will TA for GHIST 101 World History to 1500 taught by Michael Seth. I took a course last fall with Dr. Seth (HIST 653) and had a great time. In fact, the only professor this semester that I have yet to work with is Dr. Van Norman. Dr. Versen is my thesis director, and I worked with Dr. Dillard on History Day in the Spring.
I am looking forward to beginning the second, and final year of my Master’s degree. I will post the list of books for each course in the coming days, and, as always, I will describe each class in detail once the semester begins.
