Elijah Dicks

I earned my B.A. in History from Colorado State University, and my M.A. in History from the University of South Dakota. From 2007-2008, I served as a graduate assistant for the Department of History at the University of South Dakota. Since then, I have been teaching American History, Western Civilizations, World Civilizations, Islamic Civilizations, 20th Century World History, and Special Topics courses at the community college level.

Academic Interests:
My area of specialization is the Early British Empire (particularly in the Caribbean and North America).

Personal Interests:

Although I am originally from Iowa, the state of Colorado has served me as a second home for more than a decade. I am a wilderness enthusiast, enjoy snowboarding and fishing (though not simultaneously), I play a mean piano, and have backpacked through North Africa, New Zealand, British Columbia, Alaska, and 21 countries in Europe.
