Kristina Mullinex Judges Alabama History Day Projects

Kristina Mullenix

On Friday, March 3, PhD student Kristina Mullinex participated in the annual statewide Alabama History Day, an opportunity for students from grades six through twelve to conduct year-long research and create exhibits on historical subjects.

Kristina served as a judge for senior high school projects on the theme of “frontiers.” She was very impressed on multiple levels, including the participants’ creativity and the level of scholarship. The winning exhibit dealt with the frontier of women’s fashion in the 1960s, specifically the miniskirt, and all of the competitive submissions made use of both primary and secondary sources and were accompanied by annotated bibliographies.

Kristina herself is a Tuscaloosa native whose interests lie at the intersection of public history, genealogy, and archival research.
