What's New in the History Department

March 30, 2017

Being a history major at Boston College has never been more exciting. Our students continue to inspire and amaze us in the classroom and out. I hope you enjoy an inside look at some of this year's highlights in the History Department:

In other news, we are delighted to welcome three new colleagues this year. Nicole Eaton, a Russian and Soviet historian, and Yajun Mo, a modern Chinese historian, add new strengths to our already impressive cohort of junior professors. Conevery Valencius, a highly respected U.S. environmental historian, will join us in September 2016.

Stay tuned for more as we launch our Undergraduate Engagement Initiative, designed to bring faculty and students together to talk about the study of history in the 21st century. Through projects, discussions, and celebrations, this initiative will enliven our intellectual community and help us cultivate a better sense of what we, as students of the past, can contribute to making a better future.

As a History Department graduate, you remain an important part of our extended family, and we encourage you to keep in touch.

Chair, History Department
