The UNT Libraries have announced the 2015-16 Fellowship Awards from Special Collections and The Portal to Texas History. Winners are invited to spend a week in residence at UNT conducting research, and each are also invited to present a brief overview of their research during their residency as part of a Fellowship Lecture Series.
Join us on Friday, June 19 when Olivier Burtin will be giving his lecture "The American Legion and Veterans' Politics" from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in The Forum. Burtin describes his project as “A study of the American Legion during the period from 1940 to 1965, with a focus on how different generations of veterans interacted with each other (WWI, WWII, Korea) within the group and how this affected the Legion’s position in national politics.”
Olivier is a 4th-year graduate student in history at Princeton University, and he holds MAs in History from Princeton University and The Paris Institute of Political Studies. This lecture will be at the end of a week-long research residence at UNT.
