Each student will give an oral presentation in the last three weeks of the semester in a symposium (colloquium) style format.

You must also provide a short handout including a bibliography of all of your primary and secondary sources to all who are present so that they can follow what you are talking about. Please, don’t just make a copy of your PowerPoint. It must be a 1-2 page handout with your thesis, main talking points and conclusion. Your presentation should be 10-15 minutes long with a 5-10 minutes discussion.
