Jan. 26, 2023

An article about the increase in hate crimes reported in San Antonio, Texas, reported that Texas and San Antonio both broke records for reports of hate crimes, according to Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism. The center puts together its own national report.

Levin attributed the high numbers to reporting changes, but only in part. "We've been seeing horrible increases in anti-LGBT violence, and we're very concerned about that," Levin told Axios.

Politics in the Roman Republic: Perspectives from Niebuhr to Gelzer
Brill Research Perspectives in Ancient History

Cary Barber, assistant professor of history, published a paper that “provides historiographical surveys of four transformative historians: Barthold Niebuhr, Theodor Mommsen, Friedrich Münzer, and Matthias Gelzer. Close analysis of each author reveals their innovations – methodological, narrative, and philosophical – to be foundational to modern historical praxis, particularly within studies of the Roman Republic: these maestri rendered political history susceptible to ‘scientific’ inquiry, systematized available evidence, and crafted frameworks for reimagining premodernity.”
