The History Department at Lynchburg College sponsors a History Seminar to be held at selected times each semester, when Lynchburg College students and faculty gather to hear a short paper presented by one of their own, often based on current research.
Topics range widely over the broad field of history, and can include papers from other fields of study that have an historical aspect, as well as papers presented by invited speakers from outside the immediate College community.
