History and Global Studies

At Bishop’s, we believe that historical knowledge serves an individual and society the way memory does. It gives us perspectives and insights into the world in which we live and present us with the almost limitless range of ways humans have organized their lives. We also understand that the past is presented or re-presented in specific ways by historians and others, such as politicians and heritage advocates; as a result, we believe it is just as important to learn about and analyze historical interpretations as it is to learn about the past itself.
