The History Department at Sac State invites you to help us build a better future for our students! Our award-winning faculty are model teacher-scholars, guiding our students to a better understanding of today through interpreting the past. Whether Dr. Michael Vann’s research on the commemoration of violence in Southeast Asian museums (where he is currently on a Fulbright Fellowship), Dr. Mona Siegel’s investigation into the global movement for women’s emancipation in 1919 (for which she recently won a prestigious National Endowment for the Humanities award), Dr. Patrick Ettinger’s exploration of refugee resettlement in Sacramento (on exhibit this spring), or Dr. Paula Austin’s work on the self-assertion of black youth in segregated Washington D.C. (her book is coming out this summer), our faculty are exploring historical topics with out students that have deep resonance in today’s world. We are actively engaged with giving our students real world experiences that build career skills and connections with the community.
Gifts to the History Department over the years have allowed us to do some wonderful things. We invite you to contribute to the History Department and to help our students gain the perspective to make sense of our world!
