History News

Who are we, and where are we going? For the answers, the Department of History looks to the past to see where we came from. Below you’ll find chronicles of our History students, alumni and faculty, and you can contact us if you think you have a History story that should be published here. Students learn about the political, cultural, industrial and revolutionary movements that led to the rise and fall of civilizations across time. Their interest in uncovering the patterns and watershed breaks from tradition that shaped our world is encouraged by a passionate faculty eager to show them the past while preparing them for their future.

Artemy Kalinovsky, the College of Liberal Arts Professor of Intergrative Knowledge recently published an article titled Russian Moves in Afghanistan Are About Regional Stability, Not Revenge on US in Russia Matters. 


 

In 2020, College of Liberal Arts students nearly doubled our previous record for Fulbright U.S. Student Program winners, with 15 of our students becoming Fulbrighters. We couldn’t be prouder of our winners, who showcase the incredible diversity and global citizenship of the CLA community.
