Who We Are

Led by innovative, discipline-defining faculty, the Emory History Department produces cutting-edge understandings about the significance of the past in the present. Our areas of specialization encompass - and illuminate revealing connections across - an array of thematic, geographical, and chronological contexts.

We value collaboration, equity, and rigorous intellectual exchange, and we work to cultivate personalized relationships of support and mentorship with our students. We provide robust opportunities for research and creative inquiry for both undergraduates and graduate students within the classroom, in archives, and far beyond.
