Teaching history in surprising ways

Interdisciplinarity and the creative process alike inspire Professor of History Susan Ashley, who served as dean of the college and dean of the faculty from 2005-12. At CC since 1970, she teaches 19th and 20th century European history, with an emphasis on intellectual and social history, and her research focuses on conceptions of marginality in late 19th and early 20th century Europe. Ashley teaches Creativity: Arts and Artisans, a course focused on the creative process and on promoting creative work, and she led a project last semester involving mapping different historic themes and periods, and using GIS to overlay these maps while teaching history in Italy.
