Lisa Cline

Sharon Elise Cline (who goes by "Lisa") is Assistant Professor in the Humanities Department.  Lisa has an M.A. in History from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville and has completed her Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where she served as the George Mosse Teaching Fellow. 

She utilizes a variety of primary materials in her classrooms, where her teaching interests focus on modern European/French women’s and gender history, European intellectual and cultural history, and world history.

“For fun, I like to hike, bike, camp, backpack, and jog," she says.  “I love to travel and explore new places. I enjoy making soap and I love almost everything about food."

Lisa also says, "I love teaching history because I get to help students see beyond the story-line of names and dates to the human dilemmas and political questions that crop up again and again, and that continue to make the subject relevant.” She lives in Burlington.
