Topical Clusters: In Depth

This section of the website attempts to map the scholarly, teaching, and intellectual interests of our faculty and students—in a departure from the regional/national/period divisions history departments tend to use. The cluster titles demonstrate many kinds of convergence and collaboration. The operative meanings of any one cluster will vary: in some cases there may be intensive collective collaboration taking place (e.g., through a reading group or workshop series); in others the interaction takes the form of occasional conversations among individuals. Explore U-M History’s clusters of interest and link to related faculty and graduate students below.
