Excited to have students & faculty here for our first #DH colloquium series event featuring VoiceThread #onecoolthing #pedagogy


In some of our history classes, we explore the past through historical games! #rttp #reactingtothepast #onecoolthing #pedagogy


Dr. Burgtorf's article, "Were There Reforms in the Order of the Temple?" was recently published in Ordines Militares!


Mock Inquisition!

Mark your calendars! A mock Inquisitional Trial, featuring many villains who have besmirched New Spain with their blasphemies and wrongdoing, and presided over by learned scholars of the most holy Church, shall take place in the Quad on Dec. 6 at 11:30 am.

Historians of the colonial era of New Spain have frequently relied upon the Inquisition and its fantastic records to analyze and deconstruct social and cultural meanings for the past. They simply cannot pass on a unique set of records with detailed testimonies that connect gender, religion, race, witchcraft, slavery, etc. etc. These cases present us a vision of the colonial world, albeit one that at times reifies Church power and makes colonial subjects appear uniformly crazy, criminal, and unholy.


Check out Dr. Varzally's post on Loving v. Virginia!


Happy end of the academic year! Stay tuned over the summer for posts about & (s) from faculty & students!
