The 2007/2008 academic year was very eventful for the Department. It continued to play an active role in the organization and delivery of the Roundtable Conferences sponsored by the Historical Society of Ghana to commemorate the Golden Jubilee Anniversary of Ghana's Independence.
The theme for the Roundtable Conferences was "Reflections on Fifty Years of Ghana's Independence: Interrogating the Past, Shaping the Future". Dr. W.J.
