Listserv: Dr. Tabuteau maintains a listserv for undergraduates interested in history (majors, minors and others) and a listserv for alumni who want to remain connected to the department. Both lists are intended to serve as discussion sites for history-related matters that members of the lists choose to raise. They both receive notices of interesting history-related items and events on and off campus. In addition, the undergraduate listserv receives announcements of university, college and department policies and deadlines; university, college and department positions open to undergraduates; jobs and internships; new and interesting course offerings, office hours and other items of interest to those who have not yet completed their undergraduate degrees. To be added to either list please send an e-mail message (containing your full name and the e-mail address you use) to
