Understanding the world through research into the past is at the heart of Memorial’s History department. Our faculty are engaged in a wide range of projects which vary geographically and thematically. While this research stretches from the local to the international, and covers periods from the start of history to this century, we are all linked by a deep sense that inquiry into the past allows for an understanding of today’s world. Moreover, the majority of our department’s research projects are designed to incorporate students into active, experiential learning about the past and about the world of the historian.
