Welcome to new faculty and students!

Welcome to all new and existing history majors as we launch in to our last quarter on academic quarters.  We are pleased to also welcome Dr. Cary Barber and Dr. Diana Johnson who will be joining our department as tenure-track faculty this year.  

Dr. Barber received his B.A. in History and Classics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2008 and his Ph.D. in History from Ohio State University in 2016. Last year, he was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Classical Languages at Wake Forest University. He studies the convergence of politics, warfare, and death in the Roman Republic and its implications for social, cultural, and political history through demography. 

Dr. Johnson joins the history and ethnic studies departments from SUNY at Purchase, where she was previously an Assistant Professor.  Originally from Washington State, Dr. Johnson received her BA from Eastern Washington University and her MA and PhD in History from the UC Davis, which she completed in June 2017. She is currently completing a book manuscript chronicling a multiracial history of labor activism, cultural nationalism, and transnational politics based in Seattle and the greater Pacific Northwest during the 1970s and 1980s.

We are looking forward to working with you all in what promises to be yet another amazing year.
