Keep in touch!
The history department takes pride in our students' success. We're always glad for you to stop by our offices or email us. We also share news from the department and interesting historical finds through Facebook.
Founded in 1992, the Hanover Historical Review is a student-edited journal of student scholarship. The HHR Editorial Board welcomes submissions of essays, document transcriptions, and book reviews of a historical nature from any discipline.
A student-faculty-staff team is telling the stories of the first African-American graduates from Hanover College through Learning in Black and White. We'd love for you to join us -- with research assistance or memories or documents. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
The Hanover Historical Texts Collection is the history department's pioneering project to put primary source documents online. In 1995, we were among the first to digitize historical documents for use in classrooms around the world. We continue to add to the collection, and we are delighted that researchers, students, and other interested readers use it every day.
