Texas Wesleyan History Program Hosts Medieval Scholars

Student participants of MEMNTO conference 2024

On Saturday, February 24, the Texas Wesleyan History program hosted student scholars from seven universities across North Texas and Oklahoma at the 7th Annual MEMNTO (Medievalists and Early Modernists of North Texas and Oklahoma) for a conference.  They were joined by faculty from across the region, who served as session moderators.

Students presented their research on such varied topics as feminism, literature, war, art, and politics at the day-long event.  A lunch keynote was delivered by Dr. Kyle C. Lincoln entitled "'Afterward He Was Send to Palencia' Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying (About the Idea of Law School) and Love Research."  It was an inspirational talk about the author's own journey as an undergraduate and his growing love of the investigative process of historical research.
