Dr. Stuart Voss
Distinguished Service Professor of History
I approach history from a more wholistic perspective, trying to understand the way the various "themes/fields" interact and interconnect.
In the classroom, I employ extensive role-playing and creation of historical families to help the students see the history they are studying from different perspectives and see that history more in relation to their own lives (why they choose to focus on some portions of that history and not others: what that says about them, living in the history of their own present).
