The Department of History at The University of New Mexico is a vibrant community of scholars, teachers, and students located in the center of the American Southwest.


  • Our scholarly reputation rests on the intellectual achievements of our faculty, which includes numerous historians who have won book and article prizes, appeared in documentaries, been featured on television and radio programs, and contributed articles to journals, newspapers, and magazines across the nation and around the world.
  • Our scholarship and teaching interests range from medieval Europe to early modern Central and South Asia to modern Europe and the United States to the Indigenous Americas. We have long excelled in such areas as the American West, Latin America, Iberia and medieval Europe, and have developed more recent specializations in women and gender, science and medicine, and borderlands and transnationalism.
