Hello Peers! I am a fourth-year transfer student majoring in History and minoring in Middle Eastern Studies. My research interests include Arab separatism in southwestern Iran and the place of the Iran-Iraq War in Iranian national memory. I am co-facilitating the DeCal "Iran: A History Through Film" this semester and plan to spend my time outside of class working at the Oral History Center and as a tutor for the Multicultural Institute. I hope to make the most of my last year at Berkeley, so please stop by with your questions and concerns. I am always happy to share any insight or experience I have to help.

Welcome to History! I'm a senior History major and Gender and Women's Studies minor. I am also a research assistant in the History department, as well as a Campus Ambassador, or tour guide. I love studying languages, feminist theory, and the history of labor in the Unites States. Fun Fact: I am a yoga teacher, and I facilitate a DeCal course called Meditation and Materialism.

Hi! My name is Tyler Chisman.  I am a senior History major with a focus in 19th and 20th century Europe planning to write my thesis on an aspect of the First World War involving Britain.  I transferred to UC Berkeley in Fall 2015 from Monterey Peninsula College.  Last semester I was a social science tutor at the Student Learning Center for History 7B.  And the semester before that I worked in the Classics department with a professor through the URAP program. Outside of class, I enjoy reading, road and mountain biking, watching sports, and binge watching Netflix when possible.
