The Department of History is nationally recognized for its innovative digital and public history efforts. This summer, two teams of faculty and grad students will attend an international Digital Humanities Institute in Victoria, British Columbia to share their experiences and gain new knowledge and skills.
Transfer students are an integral part of the Department of History. Learn more about the experiences of Brian Tillinger and Kathe Tallmadge, two undergraduate majors who have completed compelling independent research projects on Medieval France and Ancient Rome respectively.
Faculty Book Corner
Touted as the "Jerusalem of the Balkans," the Mediterranean port city of Salonica (Thessaloniki) was once home to the largest Sephardic Jewish community in the world. The collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the city's incorporation into Greece in 1912 provoked a major upheaval that compelled Salonica's Jews to reimagine their community and status as citizens of a nation-state. Jewish Salonica is the first book to tell the story of this tumultuous transition through the voices and perspectives of Salonican Jews as they forged a new place for themselves in Greek society.
