FIU History Department receives NEH grant


Congratulations to Dr. April Merleaux, whose grant proposal on "Ecohumanities for Cities in Crisis" has been funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities grant for Humanities in the Public Square. This is a major public history grant, and we are happy to celebrate the achievements of Dr. Merleaux and Dr. Rebecca Friedman, who also worked on the proposal.

Congratulations to Dr. Victor Uribe!


Dr. Victor Uribe's new book, Fatal Love: Spousal Killers, Law, and Punishment in the Late Colonial Spanish Atlantic, is now available from Stanford University Press. For historians, spousal murders are significant for what they reveal about social and family history, in particular the hidden history of day-to-day gender relations, conflicts, crimes, and punishments.
