Welcome!


Historians at the University of California, Riverside trace the past and its connection to the present, across the globe and across time. Their work has won awards from the Western History Association, the American Society of Ethnohistory, the North American Conference of British Studies, the Society of Historians of the Early Republic, and the Organization of American Historians.

UCR History department members have earned fellowships from the Omohundro Institute, the Max Planck Institute, the Radcliffe Institute, the Institute for Advanced Study, the Huntington Library, the Folger Shakespeare Library, the National Humanities Center, the NEH, the ACLS, the American Philosophical Society and the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation. Their most important contribution is their work with graduate and undergraduate students.
