The Department of History seeks to develop in its students an appreciation for the richness, diversity and complexities of human history. In the course of their studies, students are exposed to a wide range of different historical periods and geographic regions, including courses on the history of America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
Knowing our history graduates, this comes as no surprise. According to Forbes, “Humanities degrees provide great return on investment.” The word is out that, after graduation, Denison's history majors lead successful lives and have thriving careers.
Associate Professor of History Megan Threlkeld has authored a new book, titled “Pan American Women: U.S. Internationalists and Revolutionary Mexico,” a deeply researched study of interwar feminist interactions.
