To practice history is to apply historical thinking across a range of activities, from archival research and scholarly communication to public debate and engagement with the major events and issues of today. As faculty, students and alumnae, the history department is a source of original historical research on a range of topics, periods and places, all of them highlighted in these pages.
In this section you will be able to explore the research / publications and speaking engagements of our faculty; see samples of student research, learn how to write a grant proposal, apply for research funding, and conduct a senior independent study.
Historical research continues after graduation, as alumnae continue to carry out research and publish. In addition, the history department also offers funding for postgraduate student research.
