Human Rights Archive: Tyler Goldberger, Ph.D. candidate, Department of History, College of William & Mary, “”Generalísimo Franco is Still Alive!”: Transnational Human Rights and the Anti-Fascist Narrativization of the Spanish Civil War and Francisco Franco Dictatorship within the United States, 1936-Present.”
“For Tyler Goldberger, a 2019 graduate of the Jewish Studies certificate program with majors in History and Spanish and now a doctoral candidate at William & Mary, the program is what allowed him to realize the vast depth, breadth and importance of Jewish studies as a field.
The richness of the field comes when scholars and practitioners who have expertise in a number of disciplines work together to cover unchartered territory and ask new questions.”
“I have realized that research is alive, especially with the incredible resources provided by Rubenstein. I have had the opportunity to engage with local election results in Durham, abolitionist pamphlets from the 19th century, human rights policy in Spain, and so much more!”
“Maybe the taboo is finally broken. Not only do students with low socioeconomic status (SES) exist on campus, but we have a voice, too.”
