On Saturday, March 23, USF students Stephen Naylor and Keith Simmons presented papers at the 2013 Phi Alpha Theta Regional History Conference. Even more impressive, both earned the conference’s top honors. The conference, held this year at the University of Florida, brings together undergraduate and graduate history students from across the state to present their research. Naylor’s paper, “The Changing Face of Argentine Immigration: The Ley de Residencia and the Impact of Darwinism in 19th Century Argentina,” won the award for Best Undergraduate Paper. Simmons won the Best Graduate Paper award for his talk, “U.S. Foreign Aid and Katrina.” Stephen Naylor is a senior history major at USF and plans to enter the USF M.A. program in the fall. Keith Simmons is a first year M.A. student, studying the history of U.S.-Latin American relations.
