The Spring 2024 issue of History @ Illinois is here! 

"It’s difficult to believe that another year has flown by. As I enter the final semester of my five-year term as chair, I feel energized about the department, our faculty, and our students. This year we welcomed a new faculty member, a large class of almost 100 incoming undergraduate majors, and a class of 12 new graduate students, 9 of whom are pursuing Ph.D.s and 3 of whom are completing the joint M.A./M.S.L.I.S. degree. Our trivia night in August drew so many students that faculty gave up our seats so that more students could participate! Several of our colleagues have completed books this year; many of us are reinvigorating our research programs after the pandemic, creating new courses, engaging the public beyond the university, and leading
programs and centers across campus. This is a moment of change as we envision the future." --Professor Dana Rabin, Letter from the Chair
