Rowland M. Brucken earned a Ph.D. and MA from the Ohio State University and a BA from the College of Wooster. He joined the faculty of Norwich University in 2001 and currently serves as associate dean for the College of Liberal Arts.

His numerous courses include classes and seminars on U.S. history, historical methods, constitutional law, the civil rights movement, human rights issues, and the history of baseball.

His main areas of expertise cover American diplomatic history, 20th century American history, and world history, with specialties in the history of international human rights law and U.S. civil rights. His academic research focuses on three prime areas: the origins of international human rights law during and after WWII; how societies can recover from mass atrocities, such as genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes; and the history of baseball.

An ultrarunner who competes in races up to 100 miles in length, Brucken has finished over 60 marathons and more than 25 ultramarathons. He serves as Amnesty International USA’s Zimbabwe Country Specialist, which requires daily monitoring of the human rights environment, protecting human rights defenders, and testifying in asylum cases in the United States.

He is a certified mediator, who provides citizen-to-citizen mediation in Northfield, Vt. A restorative justice advocate, he has served on the village’s reparative board for a dozen years. Brucken helped create the Barre and Montpelier Community Justice Centers and currently chairs the Montpelier Center’s Citizen Advisory Board.
