Kevin T. Kenyon, Ph.D.
Professor of History; Coordinator of the History Program
I teach surveys of Western Civilization; the History of Anthropology; Holocaust and Modern Memory; World War II, the Middle East; Modern Russia, Modern Germany; and occasionally, Political Science.
I am especially interested in ethnicity and nationalism, focusing on sociolinguistics and linguistic minorities. Language renewal or preservation movements like those of certain Native American peoples, the Welsh, the Ainu of Japan, the various Balkan peoples, and the Romany people are especially interesting. My latest research involves how some ethnic minorities in East Central Europe used terrorism in the years after World War I as a political tactic to achieve independence for their homelands.
