Hello, my name is Trevor Halpenny and I am a fourth year History major. My areas of interest lie mainly in the field of contemporary history, specifically the Second World War and the Cold War. I am particularly interested in the causes and consequences of the war and how the conflict can be regarded as a reference point for today’s political and social environment.
In the winter semester of 2020, I took professor Evans’ 20th century German history course, which I enjoyed. I am excited to explore the history of contemporary Europe and discuss the impact of authoritarianism and populism . I am looking forward to meeting and working with everyone here.
