Department of History

“The past is never dead. It’s not even past” - William Faulkner

Welcome to the Department of History

“We acknowledge that we live and work in the traditional territory of the Siksikaitsitapii (Blackfoot people). We also acknowledge the role the discipline of History has played in the dispossession and genocide of Indigenous peoples, here and around the world.”

Welcome to the Department of History at the University of Lethbridge! Our department includes an incredible group of professors, all with national and international reputations for their scholarship. Our geographical strengths are in western European and North American History, but we also offer courses in World History and Asian History, and our temporal expertise stretches from the Ancient World to the twentieth century.
