"GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Two Greensboro College students have been selected to present papers in April at a conference of the state historians' association.
Sofia Sedergren, a junior history and political science major from Bromma, Sweden, and Melanie Smith, a senior history and sociology/cultural studies major from Verona, N.J., will present their papers at the North Carolina Association of Historians Annual Conference, April 1-2 at N.C. A&T State University in Greensboro.
Sedergren's paper, "Nationalist Movements and British Foreign Policy, 1904-32," grew out of her work in the college's Nations and Nationalism history course, while Smith's paper, "John Locke and Founding American Doctrine," grew out of her work in the college's History of Knowledge course.
Both courses are taught by Allison Palmadessa, assistant professor of history.
