Faculty - Dr. Elizabeth McKillen

Professor of History
140 Stevens Hall

My teaching and research specialties are in the history of U.S. foreign relations and U.S. labor history. Since coming to the University of Maine, I have regularly taught the two semester sequence in the history of U.S. foreign relations (HTY 473-474), U.S. labor history ( HTY 477), and the second half of the U.S. history survey (HTY 104). I also offer graduate courses in U.S. foreign relations and labor history, and have taught the senior seminar (HTY 498), and a seminar in immigration history. My research explores the importance of international political and economic issues for workers and the role of labor unions and other labor organization in shaping, and in resisting, U.S. foreign policy.
