Britain

British history has a long tradition at the University of Maryland. Currently it is taught by Professor Richard Price who specializes in modern British history, Julie Taddeo, who specializes in cultural history, and Sabrina Baron, whose field is early modern history.   At the moment, our curricular emphasis does not permit any course offerings before the late fifteenth century.   But we typically offer a full range of courses at the lower and upper levels for undergraduate students who are interested in studying Britain.   At the graduate level, our training is concentrated on the modern period with a particular emphasis on the history of the British Empire.
