Undergraduate Lightning Round

The submissions portal for the AHA23 Undergraduate Lightning Round has closed.

The Undergraduate Research Lightning Round features three-minute presentations by undergraduate historians describing their research. This lightning round highlights the range of student research and encourages students to practice explaining their work to fellow historians. We encourage members to attend the session and hear about the work being done by undergraduate history majors and students. The submission form for the Undergraduate Research Lightning Round will open in the summer and submissions will be due by November 15, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. As an example, you can see the titles of previous Undergraduate Research Lightning Round presentations in the AHA22 program. In addition, the AHA has prepared some suggestions for crafting an effective Lightning Round presentation. Please note, an undergraduate student may participate in both the poster session and lightning round only if the research submitted to each session is unique.
