Auburn University’s history department enjoys a large number of faculty whose primary research and teaching interests focus geographically on the United States of America. For chronological focus, our faculty spans the 18th to the 21st centuries, with particular strengths in the colonial and Early Republic periods, antebellum and Civil War history, and the history of the modern US. Topically, our faculty strengths include (but are not limited to) Native Americans, American religion, slavery and Civil War, urban history, aerospace and aviation history, African American history, southern history, labor history, gender and women’s history, and the history of technology. Methodologically, historians in this cluster include specialists in ethnohistory, oral history, textual history, material culture, social history, cultural history, and public history.
Departmental faculty members also cooperate with interdisciplinary programs in the College of Liberal Arts such as Africana Studies, Women’s Studies, and Religious Studies.
