Bio
Hello! My name is David and I am a history PhD student. I am an oral historian who interviews people who have lived through historical mommsents. My dissertation research is focused on school desegregation in the San Francisco Bay Area and those who experienced it first hand. I have also worked with the Regional History Project at UCSC to create an oral history book titled The Empty Year: An Oral History of the Pandemic(s) of 2020 at UC Santa Cruz. Oral history and podcasting is a relatively underdeveloped field that I am hoping to gain more experience in. In December 2020, I attended a virtual residency at the National Humanities Center and received training on how to create humanities focused podcasts. I look forward to creating podcasts with DSAS with a focus towards graduate students and grad life!
