Anna Caney, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of History


In all of my classes I apply principles to cultivate curiosity in the subject, interest in the material, and engage a student's ability to apply critical thinking skills, ask questions, and participate in discussion. Beyond the classroom, students will learn to access and use archival material, utilize primary sources in their research, write with skill and confidence, and successfully complete oral presentations in both the classroom and professional settings.

Outside of the classroom I enjoy cooking and motorcycling, as well as traveling, camping, and backpacking.
