New Inter-field Clusters in the Department
Alongside our existing 14 sub-fields, the History Department is introducing this year three new inter-field clusters, which are intended to attract students and faculty to innovative new themes and current in the historical discipline. The aim of the new clusters are: 1) to connect to important new trends in the wider field; 2) to encourage new paths of research and teaching in the Department; and 3) to provide a forum for graduate students and faculty to meet and work together. The clusters will offer new courses, sponsor outside speakers, and convene Department-based workshops and seminars.
The three clusters are:
- Gender, Sexuality, Women: This cluster aims to build upon the considerable strengths of the Department in these intersecting areas of research. Affiliated faculty include: Robin Derby, Ellen DuBois, Andrea Goldman, Lynn Hunt, Ghislaine Lydon, Valerie Matsumoto, Katherine Norberg, Brenda Stevenson, and Mary Yeager. Contact person: Ellen Dubois (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- History in Practice: This cluster aims to provide an organizational footing for the Department’s commitment to applying history in the service of the larger community. Affiliated faculty include: Stephen Aron, Kelly Lytle Hernandez, Toby Higbie, Jan Reiff, and Geoffrey Robinson. Contact person: Stephen Aron (email@example.com)
- Oral History: This cluster aims to introduce familiarity with various genres of oral forms, and the core methodological tools for the collection and interpretation of oral sources. Affiliated faculty include: Andrew Apter, Scot Brown, Valerie Matsumoto, Toby Higbie, Jan Reiff, and Sharon Traweek. Contact person: Robin Derby (firstname.lastname@example.org).
