To learn more about the Department of History, in particular about its staff and about applying to King’s, go to the main webpage.

This blog has a different function.  We want to share with each other and with you the kinds of research and teaching we are doing.  Some posts will explore the history of History as a discipline at King’s. Others will enter into debates with current controversies in our areas of research interest.

The research community at King’s consists of over 50 full-time scholars and teachers, and over 100 graduate students.  We include historians of Australia, Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe.  We hope these posts will open up new conversations inside and out of King’s
