The History Department is an intentionally diverse community
of scholars whose presence and perspectives are critical to our work as historians and to our understanding of the past. We stand together as historians; we stand together as well, as members of a diverse community composed of different racial, ethnic, and national backgrounds, and of different religious beliefs and sexualities. We are fully committed to defending that diversity and we stand in solidarity with our colleagues, our students and our staff who may be feeling particularly vulnerable at this time.
