KU announces spring 2013 candidates for degree

Fri, 05/17/2013

LAWRENCE — The names of more than 4,500 candidates for degrees at the University of Kansas this spring — representing 95 Kansas counties, 41 other states and the District of Columbia, and 42 other countries — have been announced by the University Registrar.

The Class of 2013 includes more than 1,440 students who completed degree work in summer and fall 2012. Because KU conducts only one formal Commencement ceremony each year, many of these graduates will return Sunday, May 19, for the university’s 141st Commencement. More than half of the members of the Class of 2013 are expected to participate.

Faculty and candidates for degrees will assemble at 10 a.m. along Memorial Drive for the procession, which begins at 10:30 a.m.

Commencement information and an up-to-date schedule of events are available at commencement.ku.edu.

Degree candidates are listed online by home city and county, state or country; and degree, based on available information. There is also a list of all students listed alphabetically. These lists only include names of students who applied for graduation by March 10.

Lauded race and class historian becomes KU Foundation Professor David Roediger’s award-winning research and writing has already transformed how historians view the growth of social freedoms in America though the intersection of race, class, ethnicity, and labor. Now Roediger, as KU’s first Foundation Distinguished Professor of History (http://bit.ly/1AbAqYw), will continue to break new ground in those fields as he leads KU’s departments of American Studies and History. Roediger likes to study historical flash points — where one particular change brings a cascade of wider cultural changes. His latest book, “Seizing Freedom, Slave Emancipation and Liberty for All,” makes the point that as slaves began freeing themselves across the South during the Civil War, their emancipation inspired and ignited other cultural movements for freedom — such as the women’s movement for suffrage and the labor movement for better working conditions and an eight-hour day. Understanding the individual stories of average people who wanted to make their lives better, including slaves or factory workers, is important to understanding the wider political movements and elections, Roediger said. “It's tempting to think that all the important political questions have been decided,” he said, “but actually people are constantly thinking about what freedom would mean for them.”
