- Christine Russell, "’We Don’t Scare Easily’: The Gary Case and Housing Discrimination in Richmond, Ca, 1952"
- Jaimee Comstock-Skipp, "Whose Painted Reality? Redefining Orientalism in British Representations of the Sultan Hasan Mosque in Cairo"
- Jesse Hoffman, "A Family of Prophets in 2nd Century Roman Egypt"
