Britain

The University of Chicago has a long and distinguished record of historical scholarship relating to the British Isles and the British empire. The wide range of faculty interest in British studies, both inside the department and beyond, the remarkable strength of the library's collections in British and Imperial history and literature, and the exciting array of academic workshops and colloquia make the University of Chicago a natural center for British studies.

Current faculty cover the chronological and methodological spectrum. Faculty research interests and course offerings make it possible for students to study England, Scotland and Ireland as well as Britain's former colonies in Africa, South Asia, North America, and the West Indies. Faculty interests run from social and cultural to intellectual, political, and economic history.
