Dale Urie grew up in Florida as part of a family that traveled to Egypt, Jordan, Israel, and many areas of Europe. A family vacation as a teenager launched her interest in understanding the connections between the past and present, between peoples of one region and another, and between religions.

As a modern European historian, she has taught courses on the development of ideas and cultures which influence the rules and attitudes we accept and live by. The question of “what it is to be human” is one that intrigues her from a personal perspective. Urie greatly enjoys discussing these topics with the students in her courses.
