Extension History students Kassem Khanafer and Danny Rinaldi have been nominated  for the HTANSW History Essay Prize for their major works projects in History Extension in 2020.

Kassem wrote his essay on The Pearl Harbour attacks, evaluating whether or not the US had actually received forewarnings of these attacks critiquing Historian Robert Stinnett’s argument that naval cryptographers had cracked Japanese naval codes and that radio silence had in fact been broken at sea.  Danny’s essay evaluated the accuracy of historian Michael Kurtz’s interpretation of the Warren Commission’s perspective and associating methodology of the John F. Kennedy assassination, critiquing the single shooter theory that became the overall conclusion.

Congratulations to these two hardworking History students.
