Department of History


The department of history was established in 2009 in the University of Zakho. The history is a keystone for most of other disciplines in the arts and the social sciences because it has remarkably few thematic borders. It is commonly acknowledged that understanding the past is fundamental to understand the present. The analysis and interpretation of history provide an essential context for evaluating contemporary institutions, politics, and cultures. Understanding the present configuration of society is not the only reason to study the past; history also provides unique insight into human nature and human civilization. By demanding that we see the world through the eyes of others, the study of history provides us with a richly-textured, substantive framework for understanding the human condition and problems. History is essential to the traditional objectives of the liberal arts, the quest for wisdom and virtue.
