Austin Peay State University history students put on strong showing at regional history conference

April 14, 2018

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The Vietnam War—America’s first “rock and roll war,” as it came to be known—had a distinct soundtrack that continues to help define it.

That’s why Ken Burns’ 2017 documentary, “The Vietnam War,” featured music by Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, and why The Rolling Stones’ hit, “Paint It Black,” shows up in Stanley Kubrick’s film “Full Metal Jacket.” Even Forest Gump marched through rain and muck to the sounds of Buffalo Springfield.

January 30, 2013

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.

APSU History Honor Students Create New Scholarly Journal

May 11, 2011

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.

APSU Phi Alpha Theta Students Do Well at Regional History Conference

April 13, 2011

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Dr. Minoa Uffelman, assistant professor of history at Austin Peay State University, tried not to smile last week when asked if her students would put on a strong showing at the annual Phi Alpha Theta History Conference at Murray State University that weekend.

“Hopefully we’ll win something,” she said.

That was her way of being humble. The University’s PAT chapter, which Uffelman advises, was twice named as the “Best Chapter” in the country. The organization attracts some of the campus’ brightest history students, so it came as no surprise last weekend when two of its members took home the conference’s top awards.

Noted Historian to Speak at Next APSU Honors Lecture Series

February 22, 2011

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In the vegetable world, corn has often been unfairly maligned as being a tad dull. It’s small. It’s yellow. It doesn’t evoke the same amount of fear that greens such as broccoli do.

But Dr. Michael Birdwell, associate professor of history at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, wants people to understand there is an element of excitement to this vegetable. It is, after all, a key ingredient in moonshine, and it’s also found in just about anything people ingest these days, from cereals to snack foods to soft drinks. [Read more]
