Our faculty supervise graduate students in a wide array of temporal, geographic and thematic fields, building on their strength in Canadian, European and Global History. Besides offering excellent training in Canadian social, intellectual and cultural history, and the history of the British Empire, Queen’s is now home to research clusters in intellectual history, legal history, the history of gender and sexuality. Faculty members focused on distinct regions in Europe, Latin America, Africa, or Asia bring their distinct strengths to these thematic fields. A thriving departmental seminar series, the Arthur Lower Canadian History Workshop Series, and events organized by research networks such as the Global History Initiative housed within History, as well as interdisciplinary networks such as Muslim Societies in Global Perspectives and the Russian and East European Studies Network create opportunities for scholarly conversation and collaboration.
