Faculty - Scott W. See

Libra Professor of History

Telephone: 207-581-1911

Ph.D., University of Maine, 1984

I teach graduate and undergraduate courses on a variety of Canadian, American, and Canadian-American topics at the University of Maine. Before coming to UM in 1997, I was on the faculty of the University of Vermont for twelve years. While at UVM, I received the University’s Kroepsch-Maurice Award for Teaching and served as Acting Director of the Canadian Studies Program. During 2013-2014 I was Fulbright Research Chair at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and from 1995-1996 I was a Fulbright Research Fellow at the National Archives and National Library of Canada in Ottawa. I sit on the editorial boards of Acadiensis and The American Review of Canadian Studies. I served on the Board of Directors of the Gorsebrook Research Institute for Atlantic Canada at St. Mary’s University and on the Executive Council of the Association for Canadian Studies in the United States. My research interests include social and political conflict in Canada, as well as the history of the borderlands region of New England, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada. I served as chair of the University of Maine History Department from 2003 to 2008, and I was the first Director of the University of Maine Humanities Initiative from 2010 to 2012.
