Thirteen Lycoming College students presented papers at the Annual Undergraduate Conference in Medieval and Early Modern Studies held in December at Moravian College. The interdisciplinary program explored and celebrated the literature, history, art and philosophy of the periods ranging from 500 CE to 1800 CE. The event is one of the nation's few undergraduate conferences focused on humanities and was the first to feature medieval and early modern studies.
Student presenters collaborated with Lycoming faculty Dr. Todd Preston, assistant professor of English, Dr. Cullen Chandler, assistant professor and chair of history, and Dr. Len Cagle, assistant professor of German.
Presentations by students Amber Carnahan, Margaret Daubert, Cassandra Mainiero, Rebecca Peterson, Julie Polcrack, Samantha Siniscalco, Caitlin Tengeres, Benjamin Toth, Lindsay Wagner, Phoebe Wagner, Chelsea Watts, Alyssa Young and Victoria Yuskaitis covered topics such as Anglo-Saxon England, Chaucer and Shakespeare.
