Faculty - William H. TeBrake

Adelaide & Alan Bird Professor of History

Ph.D., University of Texas, Austin, 1975

My primary teaching field is the history of medieval Europe, which I cover in an introductory course on medieval civilization (HTY 202) and in a two-course sequence, The Early Middle Ages (HTY 403) and The Late Middle Ages (HTY 404).  In addition, I teach the first half of European Civilization (HTY 105) and, from time to time, an introduction to the graduate study of History (HTY 647: Historiography and Methodology).  Finally, I offer an undergraduate research seminar (HTY 311), the Department’s Senior Seminar (HTY 498), as well as a graduate seminar on Pre-Modern Europe (HTY 517) on a regular rotation.  From 1988 to 1996 I served as the Graduate Coordinator of the Department and from 1997 to 2003 as the chair of the Department.  My area of research is the Social and Environmental History of Europe, with a particular emphasis on the Low Countries.
