Several members will also be presenting papers:

  • Matthew Snider — "Climbing the Rabbit Hole: Neo-Historicism in a Thoroughly Subjective Field"

The CSUF chapter has received the honor society's "Best Chapter Award" for 32 years in a row; its journal, "Welebaethan," has been recognized as "Best Student History Journal" for more than 25 years.
