The Hokie Historian Newsletter

We’re delighted to have our own departmental newsletter which features some of the amazing work being done by our faculty and students. History is in the news all the time these days -- the subject of political debates and policy decisions, and the context for contemporary issues of shared concern. It’s important that we continue to protect and promote high-quality history education and scholarly research. We invite you to read about some of that exceptional work here, to help us spread the word about the opportunities our program provides, and connect with us if you’re interested in learning more about how you can help support our department!

Jennifer Hart, Professor and Chair
