Micalee Sullivan


I am a PhD candidate in history at Michigan State University. I study international labor and working class history, and my dissertation is a comparative analysis of colonial systems and working class community formation in both South Africa’s diamond mines and Arizona’s copper mines at the turn-of-the-twentieth century. I love to teach history and am always looking for more effective ways to do so. In the fall of 2010, I was awarded a Cultural Heritage and Informatics (CHI) fellowship through Matrix. My project, "Sixteen Tons" is not only intended to provide materials for scholars interested in international labor and working class history, but act as an educational tool for teachers and students who are interested in studying a range of topics in history including labor, migration, community, gender, citizenship, colonialism, and comparative history.
