Professor Mark Steinberg, Ph.D.

Professor Mark Steinberg
  • University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
  • University of California, Berkeley
Rather than detailing history of events and institutions, I prefer history as human experience, ideas, actions, even emotions; history as lived and made by people—ordinary people, innovators, leaders, and rulers with great power.
Dr. Mark Steinberg is Professor of History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is also the Director of the Russian and East European Center, designated as a national resource center by the Department of Education. Professor Steinberg completed his undergraduate work at the University of California, Santa Cruz and earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to taking his post at the University of Illinois, Professor Steinberg taught at the University of Oregon, Harvard University, and Yale University. He has received many awards for his teaching, including the Sarai Ribicoff Prize for Teaching at Yale University (1993) and, at Illinois, the George and Gladys Queen Excellence in History Teaching Award (1998 and 2002) and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching (2002). In 2001, the University of Illinois gave him one of its highest honors and named him a University Scholar.
Testimonials

"Professor Steinberg has a marvelous approach to history. He not only traces the major events, but he also presents personalities and social conditions. The student then can understand why things happened."
