Braunshay G. Pertile
Master of Arts Program
B.A. in History, Southern Methodist University, 2008
Braunshay is a first year Master’s student. During his time as an undergraduate his interests focused on the history of Ancient Greece and Rome, but have shifted to US History. He is primarily interested in the evolution of racial and ethnic definitions, particularly those of mixed ethnic heritage in the south and borderland areas. Secondarily he is interested in the transatlantic movement of religious ideas and they’re changing interpretations during different periods of US History. He looks forward to honing these research aims as his graduate studies progress.
