Julie Gibert holds an AB from Davidson College and an MA and PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  She teaches courses on European history with particular focus on Britain and Ireland.  Recent courses include “World War One,” “Britain’s Global Empire,” “Episodes in Everyday Life,” and “The History of Food," as well as a Lifelong Learning course entitled "Crown, Sword, and Charter:  the Making of the British Monarchy."   

She has published and presented papers on a variety of topics including women’s education, the changing role of domestic service in British home life, and the depiction of British society in film and television. Her current research uses the papers of writer Vera Brittain to study life in twentieth-century Britain.    Dr. Gibert was a member of the American Historical Association’s Tuning Project, in which faculty members from throughout the US cooperated to articulate the core goals of historical study and to define the skills students develop through completing a degree in history.  

She is secretary of the New York State Association of European Historians, a group which facilitates scholarly dialogue among European history specialists and encourages the study and teaching of European history at all levels.
