Daemen College History & Political Science Department Blog/Newsletter

Welcome to the blog/newsletter for the History & Government Department at Daemen College.  Here, you will find news about the department, our students, and our graduates.  We hope you will become a regular visitor to the blog to keep up-to-date with departmental developments. You can access the main page from URL daemencollegehistoryandpolisci.blogspot.com  There is also a link from our Daemen History & Political Science web page. And, we're on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/daemencollegehistoryandpoliticalscience  If you would like to receive a notice as new stories are posted, you can subscribe through the link on the bottom right side of this screen. If you're a social media user, you can share stories and posts with the buttons at the bottom of each post.   

Exciting developments are underway in the History & Political Science Department.  One change that you will notice immediately is our name change:  the History & Government Department is now the History & Political Science Department. Departmental faculty members have been discussing a name change for several years, and we think the new name will help to convey our focus more effectively.  The "rubrics" used to designate our classes will be changing as well:  GVT is changing to PSC (for Political Science courses), and HIS is changing to HST (for History courses).  Courses designated as HG will become HP, and our oldest major, History & Government (and the specializations--HG-Adolescent Education and HG-Environmental Specialization), will also be renamed as History & Political Science (and HP-Adolescent Education and HP-Environmental Specialization).

As you can see from the stories posted below, our students, alumni, and faculty have much to report.  Please contact our Contributors (listed on the right side of your screen) if you have news that you would like to share.
