I've been owing the History blog an entry for some time so it seems appropriate to mention Gabriel over the White House. We are teaching the film in History 429: 20th Century America in Film and History. The 1933 film appeared just after Franklin Roosevelt's Inauguration (March 1933) and is a call for a fascist style dictatorship that would push aside the inefficiencies of democracy to fix the nation's woes.

All undergraduate students are encouraged to submit an abstract of original historical research to present at the Northeast regional meeting of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society. History paper topics may include any time period, theme, or region. You do not need to be a history major or member of Phi Alpha Theta to submit or present at the regional conference. Members do qualify for special awards and distinctions.
This is a wonderful opportunity to present your research, to meet interested scholars and other talented students from around the region. Participating in the conference is a great way to build career skills and resumes.
