Self-Intro from Rusty

My name is Rusty Bartels and I am a PhD Student in Cultural Studies here at UC Davis, and I’ll be your reader for this course. My research looks at the westward expansion of America into the Pacific World through examinations of federal and militarized landscapes (such as National Park sites in the U.S. Pacific Islands). Personally, I was born and raised in California, although I have also lived near Washington, DC and Cleveland, Ohio. I enjoy reading, cooking, skiing, and being outside in general.
