Annual Reviews

The History Department continues to expand its programs, to add new faculty, and to train our students in ways that enrich North Carolina and the nation in special ways. Through our Annual Review, we cast a wide net that is designed to report timely news about the work of UNC history faculty and graduates and to share this news with a broad audience. We are grateful to our readers for sending updates on their work to us because we are justly proud of all that you do. For a PDF of the current and past Annual Reviews, click on the links below:
