Comparative History of Ideas
Comparative History of Ideas (CHID) draws on a wide variety of disciplines to examine the interplay of ideas and their cultural, historical, and political contexts. CHID offers more study abroad programs than any other academic unit on campus, reflecting its emphasis on different disciplines and cultures. The CHID faculty, which includes a MacArthur Fellow, represents a broad swath of disciplines, including anthropology; art history; comparative literature; education; English; gender, women and sexuality studies; history; Latin American and Caribbean studies; philosophy; and rhetoric.
