The Department Welcomes a New Chair

Dr. James Burns

After 14 yeas of service as chair of the Department of History and Geography, Thomas Kuehn is stepping down to return to life as a regular faculty member. In his place, Clemson's own James Burns has been appointed as chair following a national search. As a member of the faculty since 1999, Dr. Burns has written and taught African History and Social Histories of Film.  The department is excited to have Dr. Burns as a leader.  Learn more about James Burns and his work here
