14 June 2017- I’m pleased to announce that this Fall semester, I will begin a new tenure-track appointment in History at California State University, Stanislaus! In addition to teaching in Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and migration history I will develop a public history project on modern Assyrian history and Assyrian American studies. The project is funded by the Francis Sarguis Modern Assyrian Heritage fund and I will work with Stan State undergraduates and graduate students to collect, record, preserve, and present local Assyrian American histories focusing on California’s Central Valley. The project will contribute to a growing archive in modern Assyrian heritage curated by Stan State’s Special Collections department. I’m looking forward to getting to know this community and can’t wait to get started!
