For the 4th consecutive year, students at SUNY Oswego will get the chance to test their knowledge about one of the country’s most significant events of the 19th Century.
The 4th annual Oswego War of 1812 Symposium will be held from Friday, April 4th to Sunday, April 6th. The symposium will be held at the Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center, located at 26 East First Street, in Oswego.
All SUNY Oswego students are encouraged to participate in the War of 1812 research paper competition. Paper topics may pertain to any part of the War of 1812. No specific length is required, although they must be able to be presented on for at least 10 minutes.
The Symposium won’t just be limited to research paper presentations, however. A total of twelve historian speakers will give their insight on the War of 1812. Some include historian and author, Dianne Graves, archaeologist and professor, Timothy Abel, as well as the Superintendent of Fort Ontario State Historic Site, Paul Lear.
Those who wish to present their submitted research papers can do so on Friday, April 4th. Students presenting at the symposium will also have a chance to win $150. Papers must be submitted by March 24.
Anyone with questions regarding the research papers may contact Dr. Weyhing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
