Travis E. Ross, PhD
Lecturer, Department of History
McClellan Hall 403
I am a researcher, teacher, and public historian with a PhD in history from the University of Utah. Originally from western Montana, I currently live with my wife and two children in New England. I teach in the Department of History at Yale University and work closely with the Howard R. Lamar Center for the Study of Frontiers and Borders.
I advise senior theses in history on a wide range of topics, but especially American regional history, the history of capitalism, book history, or the history of science. Yale College history majors searching for an advisor or a thesis topic are welcome to send me an email or to drop by my office on Old Campus to discuss their thesis.
My upcoming Yale College courses include:
- HIST/AMST 141: The American West (Lecture, Fall 2019)
- HIST 155/AMST 255: California Capitalism (Lecture, Spring 2020)
- HIST 019/AMST 028: The History of the Book in the American West (First-year seminar, Spring 2020)
