New Faculty 2012: Meet Scott Taylor

The Department of History is excited to welcome professor Scott Taylor to its faculty!

Professor Taylor joins us this fall researching the history of early modern Europe, especially Spain. Currently, he is working on a book on the beginnings of modern addiction, examining how western Europeans experienced "soft drugs" like sugar, tobacco, chocolate, coffee, tea, distilled spirits, and opium.

This podcast is part of a series highlighting the new faculty members who joined the College of Arts and Sciences in the fall 2012 semester.

America Through the Lens of the 2012 Election: Mark Kornbluh & Kathi Kern

Arts & Sciences Dean Mark Kornbluh and history professor Kathi Kern are teaching a class 'inside out' - by taking an issue (in this case, the 2012 presidential election) and building a course around it. The class, "Currents: America Through the Lens of the 2012 Election," is an interdisciplinary look into how American democracy functions. It is slated to be a non-partisan examination of how elections work, their function in media and society, and how elections have changed over time.
