Students' presentations focused on several different subjects, areas, and times, ranging from the ancient world to the twentieth-century in the United States. Such variation was welcome, and this was not lost on presenters from UAH. Presentations from the department's undergraduate students included:
- Rachel Byrd, "Too Much Coffee, Too Little Bread: the Revolution of a Hangry People"
- Ashley Coates, "Prudery and Prostitution: Sexual Conservatism in Roman Religion"
- Matthew Johnson, "We Light a Fire: Credulity and Consequence"
- Aaron McNully, "An Unintentional Institution: An Analysis of the Impact of Gregory the Great's Ecclesiology on the Consolidation of Western Papal Power in the Early Middle Ages"
- Daniel Munn, "Propaganda and Public Works in the Augustan Age"
- Nicole Westrope, "Did Philosophy Exist Outside of Europe?"
- Lorraine Anderson, "The Midwife's Tale: How Laurel Thatcher Ulrich Unveiled the Previously Unknown World of Post-Revolutionary War Women in Rural America"
- Whitney Andrews, "Racism, Manhood, and Femininity in the Alabama Suffrage Debate: 1915-1920"
- Kelly Fisk Hamlin, " 'This is Rocket City, U.S.A., Let Freedom Begin Here:' The Civil Rights Movement in Huntsville, Alabama"
- Joshua Riddle, "The Criteria of William Gilbert's Experimental Method"

The conference was a success and a boon to all involved. We were so pleased to see so many history students attend, especially the department's own. We are especially proud of their hard work, dedication, and accomplishments.
