We welcome a new member to our tenure track History faculty

It is with great pleasure that we pass on the news that Dr. Georgia Sitara will be converted into an Assistant Teaching Professor. She will split her teaching equally between Gender Studies and History but her home department and all her service will be in History.

Dr. Sitara is an instructor who excels in every aspect and who is highly respected and admired by students and peers alike. Her time with UVic Humanities is deep. Dr. Sitara earned her PhD with UVic History in 2007. She was a Sessional Instructor for 2001-2004 and again for 2008-2011. In 2011 she became a Continuing Sessional. Throughout all of this time she has taught some of the most popular and impactful courses in History, Gender Studies, and in Social Justice Studies. Over the last 5 years, she has taught an average of 347 students per year, with most of her courses either over-subscribed or running at 90-100% enrollment capacity.
