Clusters of Interest

This section of the website attempts to map the multifarious scholarly, teaching, and intellectual interests of our faculty and students – a departure from the regional/national/period divisions history departments tend to use. The cluster titles demonstrate many kinds of convergence and collaboration. The operative meanings of any one cluster will vary: in some cases there may be an intensive collective collaborations taking place (e.g. through a reading group or workshop series); in others the interaction takes the form of occasional conversations among individuals.
