Maxine Lurie, Ph.D.

Professor
Department of History

I started out working in early American History, first the 17th and then 18th centuries, and then in 1987 was asked to teach a New Jersey History class at Rutgers University. Now I find myself working in all three areas, sometimes they overlap and other times they do not. Most often my research and teaching coincide, with the happy consequence that what I discover in one can be used in the other.

The most rewarding moments are when I can get my students, teachers at workshops, or the public in lectures, to share my enthusiasm and interest in the small state we live in, and the complexities of the birth of the American nation.
