About the department
The research of our twenty-four full-time faculty members spans the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Our scholarship and teaching reflect our expertise in several specific areas: law and society, gender and sexuality, war and peace, science and the environment, public history and memory, media and popular culture, genocide and human rights, and transnationalism and empire.
Our research centres
Unique in Canada, our department also houses three research centres – COHDS, MIGS, & CaPSL – that treat oral and digital history, genocide and human rights, and the public presentation of history and culture. Together with our undergraduate honours program in public history, these emphasize scholarship, training, and policy development that involve the wider public’s involvement in history.
Our faculty are dedicated to excellence in the classroom and to mentoring a diverse and accomplished group of undergraduate and graduate students. Our emphasis on digital technologies, new methodologies, and broad audiences makes Concordia an ideal place to examine the past while engaging with the present.
