Brief Biography

Holly Holland is a senior at IPFW working towards her bachelor’s in Secondary Education with a concentration in Social Studies. Her academic interests include questions of identity and ownership, and exploring alternative narratives that contend with more traditional narratives. Her historical pursuits include digging deeper into American history to explore the formation of countercultures and their specific roles in American political, economic and cultural advancements. Her other creative pursuits include water-coloring, creative writing and travel. This will be Holly’s second time participating in the Annual Undergraduate History Conference, her first being last year, with a paper that questioned the “American dream” and its relation to marginalized groups. She would like to dedicate this presentation to her mother, Patricia Rugg, who considers herself to be very much an “old, proud Hippie!”
