Dawson McCall, Graduate Assistant
A first year graduate student in the History Department’s PhD program, Dawson is a former high school World History and Political Science teacher. A “hopeless generalist” by nature, his research interests include the intersection of political ideologies and educational pedagogies in West African societies, and how they work to form the historical narratives that underpin social and cultural identity, both collectively and individually. He is also a dog person and believes firmly in the power of history to change the ways in which we view the world (I know, sounds corny). You can contact Dawson via email: mccalld3 [at] msu [dot] edu.
