The History program at the University of Windsor provides outstanding teaching from a variety of professors who are engaged in fascinating and wide-ranging research. The program encourages students to develop sharpened critical thinking and writing skills, all the while being engaged in a challenging discipline. The program offers a large spectrum of study with topics ranging from the study of the Renaissance and Enlightenment, Twentieth Century events, the Middle East, and Popular Culture just to name a few.
The History Department would like to congratulate recent graduate Graham Beatty on his recent media exposure in the Windsor Star. Graham's masters thesis centers on a 1930s government project which saw numerous families from the Windsor area moved north to Kapuskasing in order to escape the clutches of the Great Depression. Graham is now also collaborating with UWindsor faculty member Dr. Kim Nelson on a documentary which will aim to highlight the plight of these displaced families. For more information please check out the Windsor Star's website, or pick up a copy of Graham's thesis in the History Department or Leddy Library.
