History T-shirts travel the world

Iceland. Jamaica. New Zealand.

These are just some of the destinations where the Department of History’s T-shirts have been photographed as part of the Travelling T-Shirt Contest.

Department of History Professor Sean Kheraj on location at Machu Picchu

The contest started after Department of History Professor and Associate Dean Sean Kheraj shared a photo of himself wearing the shirt in Machu Picchu.

Knowing it would be difficult to outdo this epic image, he challenged his colleagues to snap their own photos around the world.

Kheraj said he couldn’t have imagined a better outcome. From the Great Barrier Reef to Mount Zion, history faculty and staff took the challenge in stride.

“It’s been so exciting to see my colleagues try to top my excellent photo,” Kheraj said with a laugh. “I hope the tradition will continue throughout the year, as staff and faculty explore the world for research, conferences and holidays.”

Winners were announced just in time for the new school year.
