Dr. Chris Lovett
Professor of History
Hello, I am Chris Lovett. I received a BA in History from the College of Emporia, an M.A. in History and an MLS in Library Science from Emporia State after returning from Vietnam, and a Ph.D. from Kansas State University. My teaching fields include Russia and the Soviet Union, the Vietnam War, Holocaust, World War I, World War II, Modern Europe, and the Middle East.
Currently I am teaching Modern World Civilization, Gulf Wars, Age of Total War, World War I online, and a research seminar in the fall. During the summer term I am teaching the History of Baseball. Last summer I developed a course on the history of espionage, which fit nicely with my training in National Security Affairs. For a complete list of my current courses see my personal webpage.
In 1984, Texas A&M published my first major study, Soviet Naval Aviation: Continuity and Change. Since then I have worked extensively on American Military, Vietnam, and Soviet Naval affairs. In January 2002, St. Martin's Press published two chapters involving the Russian and Soviet Navy in their two-volume study of Russian Military History. Currently I am working on internal security issues during the McCarthy period.
Despite promising myself that I would never serve in the military again following Vietnam, I joined the Kansas National Guard and retired after twenty-six years of service.
Prior to coming to ESU, I taught at Kansas State University, the University of Iowa, and Fort Hays State University.
