Faculty Accolades

The history program includes an incredible group of professors, all with national and international reputations for their scholarship.  Faculty members have recently published articles and chapters in a wide range of different journals and books, including The Wiley Companion to Greek Warfare; the medieval history journal Storicamente; Nine Centuries of Man: Manhood and Masculinities in Scottish History; Fighting with the Empire: Canada, Britain, and Global Conflict, 1867-1947; and The Routledge History of the Twentieth Century United States. We’ve presented our research at conferences from Regina to Montreal; Pullman, Washington to Tuscaloosa, Alabama; and around the world in Ireland, Norway, Poland, Portugal, New Zealand and China. 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. There are lots of opportunities for students to get involved in faculty research projects, including through the Center for Oral History and Tradition (COHT), and the Institute for Child and Youth Studies (I-CYS). We are particularly proud of our colleague and I-CYS director, Dr. Kristine Alexander, whose book Guiding Modern Girls: Girlhood, Empire, and Internationalism in the 1920s and 1930s, won the prestigious Wilson Book Prize in the spring of 2018. And at the Spring 2018 Convocation Ceremonies, Dr. Sheila McManus became the third member of the department to receive the University's Distinguished Teaching Award.
