Publication by Amanda Ringer, New Graduate Student in History
Amanda Ringer, a new graduate student in the history department, recently had an article published in The Graybeards, a national magazine dedicated to preserving the memory of the Korean War. “Children, Closure, and Korea” is a personal story about her grandfather’s return to Seoul fifty-five years after serving in the Korean War. Amanda reflects on her own feelings as she watched her grandfather confront and explore his past.
With a law degree from the University of Mississippi and additional graduate work at the University of the South, Amanda hopes to blend her prior experiences with her passion for history. She will focus on southern history while at UAHuntsville.
Congratulations on the article, Amanda, and good luck in your future studies!
