Our professors are passionate about history. They are interdisciplinary and multifaceted in their approaches to history, with expertise ranging from the ancient and medieval to the modern and post-modern and an eye to new directions including public history and digital humanities. Many of our faculty scholar-teachers have also won teaching awards—a testament to their dedication to students.
One of our greatest strengths is our thriving intellectual community. We host several different interdisciplinary workshops focusing on a variety of topics including medieval, Native American, early modern, Atlantic, modern, legal, and women, gender and sexuality studies. In these workshops graduate students and faculty can share and gain valuable feedback on works in progress. Furthermore, nationally and internationally renowned visiting scholars often present their work at these same workshops.
