SCU’s “Historical Perspectives” has won the nation’s top undergraduate history journal prize two years in a row. Is a third win around the corner?

The History Department mourns the loss of Tim O’Keefe, a much-beloved faculty member. We were heartened, however, by the flood of condolence notes that came to the office and were forwarded to the (very grateful) O’Keefe family.
Some of Professor Meg Gudgeirrson’s immense popularity with our students stems from her willingness to incorporate social media and other non-traditional forms of communication into her classes. Students in her class on the Cold War created memes, reviewed them, and placed them in the context of the course material.
The History Department was well represented when SCU inaugurated Julie Sullivan, our first lay person, and first woman, on October 7, 2022.
Class of 1972
Updates from Matthew Newsom Kerr, Michael Brillman, Matthew Specter, and Nancy Unger
The department is using some of the funds from our generous donors to create a new History Internship Program (HIP), paid summer internships for history students. This past summer three of our students gained invaluable experience interning with the Chinese Historical Society of America in San Francisco.
The Department is delighted to announce that Mateo J. Carrillo, a proud member of the History class of 2002, is our new Assistant Professor of Latin American and Caribbean history!
From History to Occupational Therapy
