Gender Studies / Sexuality

A sizeable group of faculty in the Department of History (many with joint appointments in other units) teach and conduct research on the history of women, gender, sexuality, body, and family, with an unusually wide chronological and geographic reach and strong interdisciplinary connections to other schools and departments at Michigan. Nationally recognized and top-ranked, the faculty in this field include particularly strong clusters in early modern and modern Europe, African, Asian, and Latin American history, as well as all periods of American history, including new strength in African-American history, Latino history, African diaspora, and Native American history.  Sub-disciplinary expertise spans intellectual, cultural, social and political history, including particular strengths in history of sexuality; race, empire and imperialism; religion and history of ideas; material culture; bodies, medicine, eugenics and reproduction; feminism and social movements; citizenship and subjectivity; public history and memory; visual history; and history of violence. History faculty members participate in and advise students enrolled in the History & Women's Studies Joint PhD Program.
