UNH history faculty became interested in the field of history because of their innate interest in people and how they live together. For many of us, travel and language sparked this interest. In our studies of Asia, Russia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Europe from the medieval period to the modern age, we seek understanding of human societies.
We pursue this understanding through the study of letters and literature, gender, infrastructure and technology, idea, religion, sports, crime, and nationalism and ethnicity. We bring high standards to our classrooms, where students benefit from our ongoing research and engagement in our fields as well as our dedication to the success of UNH students.
Awards and Recognition
