The hands-on experience you get through research will help you become a better historian and help prepare you for your career. Our faculty always encourage you to come up with topics you'd like to explore.

Get Involved

It's easy for students to get involved in history research either by working with a faculty member or by taking advantage of one of our graduate-level field schools or our on-campus museums. 


Previous Research 

Our professors maintain a rich and diverse research schedule. Recently, our professors have published books on:

  • Salt merchants in High Qing China
  • 1970s America 
  • Magic in pre-modern Europe 
  • Biblical interpretation and natural philosophy in 16th century Italy 
  • Landmarks of the Confederacy 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
