Anore Horton joined the department as a Lecturer in 2009 after teaching as an Assistant Professor of History and International Studies at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina, for six years, and before that, as a Mellon Fellow in Teaching Writing at Duke University. She specializes in the history of United States foreign policy, the history of migration, immigration, and citizenship in the U.S., and the history of Central America and the Caribbean. Horton also has her own educational consulting company, providing project and curriculum design and implementation services for departments and programs, training and development workshops for faculty in teaching writing and in matching course assignments to learning objectives, and personalized writing and course design consulting for individual faculty.
At UVM, Horton teaches courses in U.S. history, the history of U.S. - Latin American relations, and the history of the Vietnam War. She holds degrees in history from Reed College and Princeton University, and in education from the University of San Diego.
Horton's current projects include a history of the forging of a Puerto Rican national citizenship identity, and the struggle for greater autonomy within the U.S. by the Puerto Rican government and Puerto Rican migrants during the Cold War era; and with Kristen Neuschel of Duke University, a handbook for faculty on using writing to teach their disciplines, and on awakening their own intellectual passions and those of their students in the process.
