485 mandatory meeting: All 485 students should come to a meeting at 5 pm on Wednesday in Monroe 210 (note: location subject to change–keep an eye on your umw email). Information about the syllabus, standards for completion–and tips for success–and more will be discussed. You’ll also have an opportunity to share questions and meet fellow thesis writers. For current syllabi, see our 485 sites for History and American Studies.
Also, don’t miss the excellent Internship Diary post shared by Claire Goode (2017) this past December — Claire created an online exhibit of James Monroe’s 1818 tour of the Chesapeake Bay area in work for The Papers of James Monroe documentary editing project hosted right here at the University of Mary Washington.
