The History Graduate Student Association at California State University, Fresno will host its Ninth annual History Graduate Student Symposium, “Historical Voices of Change,” on Saturday, April 28, with Pulitzer Prize winner Dr. Alan Taylor as the keynote speaker.

The symposium will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Science 2, Room 109.

Taylor, a professor at the University of California, Davis, won the Pulitzer for his 1995 book, “William Cooper’s Town: Power and Persuasion on the Frontier of the Early American Republic.”

At the symposium, 12 graduate students from Fresno State and other universities across the country will present their research on topics ranging from Greek and Greek-American Communists in the early 20th century to using fiction to teach history.

This year’s symposium also will include the unveiling of “Hindsight Graduate History Journal,” Fresno State’s new scholarly journal. Edited by Fresno State history graduate students, the inaugural volume showcases articles by six graduate students from across the country.
