A careful study of the past helps us better understand the present. History as an academic and professional discipline continually looks for the best ways to help us understand times, people, and places very different from our own.
The links on the left explain our program and provide information about the department. Check this page periodically for announcements and news of interest to history majors.

I will be a Brown Foundation Fellow at the Dora Maar House in Ménerbes, France in March 2014. Located in the villages of Ménerbes, in one of the most beautiful regions of Southern France, this 18th-century town house was purchased in 1944 by Pablo Picasso for Dora Maar, the artist and Surrealist photographer who was his companion and muse in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Maar (1907-1997) owned the house until her death, after which a resident of both Houston and Ménerbes bought and renovated the house to transform it into a retreat for writers, scholars, and artists. http://www.mfah.org/fellowships/doramaarhouse/fellowship/
