New CAS Faculty
Assistant Professor of History
Nicole Phelps, Assistant Professor of History, received her B.A. in International Affairs from The George Washington University. She received her M.A. and Ph.D. in History from the University of Minnesota, where she specialized in both American and modern European history.
At Minnesota, she served as an instructor for courses on U.S. diplomatic history, and she also worked for several years as the assistant editor of the Austrian History Yearbook. Her research is on relations between the United States and the Habsburg Empire in the nineteenth century and through World War I and the impact of those relations on the broader international political system. U.S.-Habsburg relations focused primarily on issues related to migration and citizenship, and Phelps's work therefore demonstrates how the problems of individual private citizens affected high-level international politics.
At the University of Vermont, Phelps will teach classes on the history of U.S. foreign relations, as well as introductory classes on U.S. history.
