Andrea Duffy

Director of International Studies, Colorado State University
Andrea Duffy has been teaching at Colorado State University since Fall 2010, and she has served as Director of International Studies since Fall 2013. She holds a B.A. in Modern European History from Princeton University and a Ph.D. from Georgetown University with specializations in European, Middle Eastern, Ottoman, and environmental histories.

As International Studies Program Director, she oversees the International Studies Major and Global Studies Minor and is involved in numerous committees and partnerships across Colorado State University. In addition, she teaches International Studies core curriculum courses as well as courses in European, Islamic, and environmental history, and Honors. Her research investigates linkages between societies and the environment in European imperial contexts. She is particularly interested in the experience of travelers and nomads, and in the environmental dimensions of colonization. Her first book, Nomad's Land: Pastoralism and French Environmental Policy in the Nineteenth-Century Mediterranean World, published in 2019, examines the impact of French environmental policy on subaltern populations in the Mediterranean region during the colonial era. She is currently composing a global history of nature and empire, under contract with Routledge Press.

Dr. Duffy shares her students' thirst for knowledge, curiosity about the wider world, and passion for international experiences and intercultural interaction. She has studied nearly a dozen languages, including French, German, Arabic, and Turkish. In her spare time, she enjoys rock climbing, hiking, and ultra-running. A Nebraska native, she has lived in France and Turkey and has visited over 30 countries across five continents. As Director of International Studies, she continues to learn and to travel whenever she can.
