I am originally from Los Angeles, CA but have spent the last five years at The New School in New York City working on my BA in History and MA in Historical Studies. During my time at The New School, I wrote my undergraduate thesis on the Columbus Monument in Columbus Circle, New York and my MA thesis on the memorialization of the assassination of President McKinley. In both these theses, I address the themes of who is considered an American, immigration and race relations, as well as the ways in which a general public may forget a once important figure and how that reappears when convenient to politics. During my time here, I hope to address these following themes through a new take on the Worlds Fairs in comparison to Disney World while looking at US cultural hegemony and imperialism.
