History expands our global perspective through a study of the histories of the peoples and cultures of Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. North America, of course, receives due attention, especially the political and social histories of Canada and the United States. History also offers specialized courses in the history of women, war, medicine, and the environment, and maintains the New England Planter Studies Centre.
