The names of several APSU history faculty members now serve on the journal’s editorial board. Dr. Jason Verber, assistant professor of history, also shared editor-in-chief duties with Carter.

APSU designated as a Certified Wildlife Habitat

 

Austin Peay State University

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University campus isn’t simply a home for some 11,000 students. Squirrels, rabbits, birds and a few feral cats have also taken up residence in the bushes and trees surrounding the red brick, Georgian-style buildings.

They come here because of the abundance of food, water and shelter, but they stay because the campus offers these creatures a safe place to raise their young.

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Earlier this week, Austin Peay State University associate professor of history Dr. Minoa Uffelman asked if there was such a word as “four-peat.” She knows the word “repeat” well.

In 2011, she used the word “three-peat” because the PAT club she advises was again singled out as the top chapter in the nation. «Read the rest of this article»

Austin Peay State University History Department helps remember War of 1812 at local conference

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In terms of notoriety, the War of 1812 isn’t nearly as popular with the general public as, say, the American Revolution or the Civil War.

But the conflict did have a pivotal impact on the United States, giving us the national anthem, Gen. Andrew Jackson and even Tennessee’s nickname as the “Volunteer State.”

Dr. Kristofer Ray, APSU assistant professor of history, Deanna Carter, APSU graduate student, and Dr. Donald Hickey, Wayne State College professor of history, meet at the Tennessee, the Atlantic World and the War of 1812 symposium in Nashville.

History honor society represents Austin Peay State University well at National Conference

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Deanna Carter, an Austin Peay State University history graduate student, felt a little like a celebrity. Whenever she walked through the lobby of the Hilton at Orlando’s Walt Disney World resort, people would stop their conversations and glance over at it.

Their attention was likely focused on her gray blazer, which had the words “Austin Peay State University Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society” stitched across the front.

“There were people from as far as California there and from some very prestigious schools, such as Carnegie Melon University, and they all knew us,” Carter said.

APSU alum Jennifer Montgomery, APSU graduate student Deanna Carter, APSU associate professor of history Dr. Minoa Uffelman, APSU student Robin Sloan and APSU student Sammy Weakley gather at the national Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society Conference earlier this month.

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In May of 1961, a group of young Austin Peay State University students, believing that they were living at the end of history, chartered a new campus honor society focused on studying the past.

APSU History Honor Students Create New Scholarly Journal

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Jennifer Montgomery didn’t get much sleep this past semester. Aside from the normal stresses of a graduating college senior, the Austin Peay State University history student was plagued with images of misspelled words and incorrectly used commas during many sleepless nights. When she thought about scholarly citations and the proper use of the Chicago Manual of Style, she nearly went into a panic.

That’s because Montgomery, a member of the University’s Phi Alpha Theta (PAT) history honor society, took on an enormous responsibility during her final semester at APSU. She was appointed to serve as the editor-in-chief of the first scholarly history journal in Austin Peay’s history.
