My name is Jesse Mosqueda, and I am a graduate student in history at San Francisco State University. I got my B.A. in history from UCLA, where I studied under Vinay Lal. My academic interests include rhetoric, modern intellectual history, French history, and South Asian history; my general interests include literature, writing, and statistics. Eventually, I hope to become an educator and a writer.
