A Faculty Committed to the Synergy between Research and Teaching

The Department of History’s faculty enjoys national and international reputations for excellence.  Our professors have recently won fellowships from the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, the American Academy in Berlin, the American Academy in Rome, the Fulbright Foundation, the Franklin Fellows Program at the Department of State, and the Kluge Center at the Library of Congress, to name just a few.   In 2017, department faculty won university-wide Provost’s Awards in both research (Prof. Jerry Muller, Achievement in Research) and teaching (Prof. Caroline Sherman, Achievement in Teaching in Early Career).   Our individual faculty profiles demonstrate the department’s commitment to research and publication in the field’s leading venues.

The department’s faculty are dedicated to bringing their enthusiastic embrace of current scholarship to the undergraduate classroom and the graduate seminar, and to engaging students in the excitement of discovery.
