Faculty - Dr. Alexander Grab

Adelaide & Alan Bird Professor of History
340 Stevens Hall


I offer courses in Early Modern and Modern European history. I also offer one course on the history of the Middle East. I regularly teach the following courses: European Civilization 1700-present (HTY 106); Europe 1648-1815 (HTY 407); Modern Italy 1796-present (HTY 429); The Holocaust (HTY 410); Modern Middle East (HTY 411). I also offer a graduate seminar in Early Modern Europe and a Senior Seminar on the French Revolution and Napoleon. My area of research has focused on Italian history in the 18th and early 19th centuries. Initially, I have studied eighteenth century Lombardy, when that region was a part of the Habsburg Empire. Currently, I am researching the Italian Peninsula, with special emphasis on northern Italy, during the French Revolution and the Napoleonic period. I am a member of the American Historical Association and the Society of Italian Historical Studies.
