The 12th Annual Michael Swan History Honours Colloquium is now history. Last Friday, January 23rd was a great day and our colleagues over in the History Undergraduate Director's office have asked us to pass on their sincere thanks to our friends at the Diefenbaker Centre for making us so welcome; to our own Ingrid Mcgregor for doing the program and posters and for arranging for our food, coffee, and cake; to the grad students who dropped by to lend support, relive past glories, and learn stuff; to the family and friends who turned out in support; to the faculty past and present who came out in record numbers; and, above all, to the sixteen honours students who presented such fine papers and participated in our daylong discussions.

This action shot from the Swan Colloquium captures the Honours students who presented in the afternoon just as the scale of their achievement begins to set in.

We salute, from left to right, James Ingold, Paula Bittman, Deana Diener, Derek Strelioff, Carolyn Bartlett, Shaun Fiolleau, Gayle Cluett, Mark Geldof, James Dobson, Ryan Winquist, and Adam Grieve.
