Studies of politics, law, and political economy--long central to the discipline of history--have been rejuvenated in recent years by the influence of cultural and social history and  interdisciplinary interactions with political science, economics, and law. Our faculty and graduate students are among the nation's leading practitioners in what is sometimes called the "new political history," exploring political ideologies, practices, and structures in a wide range of time periods and places.
