Another UCSB History Ph.D. gets on the tenure track

Congratulations to Tim Paulson, who has accepted a faculty position at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan.

Tim’s graduate research, which combined economic, labor, social, and environmental history, focused on the history of the American beef cattle industry–from ranch to table–and its place in a changing world economy. In addition to his dissertation, Tim taught courses in three departments, held a Regent’s Special Fellowship and Dissertation Fellowship, and worked on projects funded through the UC Office of the President and National Science Foundation. His committee members were Peter Alagona and Nelson Lichtenstein (co-chairs), as well as Erika Rappaport and Simone Pulver from Environmental Studies. Tim is currently a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council postdoctoral fellow at Simon Fraser University. He will begin as an assistant professor at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan, this summer.
