Helen Hatton has taught modern British and European history from First Year to combined  Fourth Year and Graduate seminars at the University of Toronto since 1993.  Her focus is on  helping students see the consequences, both immediate and long term, of  historical events, not merely stuffing  her students with names and dates.  She uses her collection of historic recordings  going back to 1888 to help bring events and personalities to life. Many students have expressed appreciation  of her willingness as an editor to give  time to  helping students  write with clarity  and conciseness.
