Dr. Brian G. Casserly's Homepage at North Seattle Community College
I have lived in the Pacific Northwest since 1993. I earned
my BA degree in history in 1998 and my Master's in 2001, both from the
University of Washington. I received my Ph.D. in history from the UW in
2007. My doctoral dissertation was titled "Securing the Sound: The
Evolution of Civilian-Military Relations in the Puget Sound Region,
|I currently teach
a variety of history classes in the Seattle area. Classes I have
taught include all parts of the U.S.
history survey, modern world history, and
Northwest history. I also developed a class in
history at North
Seattle Community College, a first for the school and the Seattle
Community College District. In addition, I have taught both lower
and upper division history classes at the
University of Washington (click
for links to classes taught). I have also taught at Shoreline,
Everett and Bellevue Community Colleges.
I am an active participant in collaborative efforts between community college faculty and librarians in the Seattle area to improve teaching and learning, particularly with regard to students' information literacy skills and assessment of student learning. With several colleagues, I have presented work on these topics at meetings of the Organization of American Historians, the American Association of Colleges and Universities, and the Community Colleges Humanities Association. Some of these efforts are described in insidehighered.com
In addition, I have worked as a researcher on various projects related to Asian American, labor, and Pacific Northwest history for the National Park Service (see the Seattle Times for one project I worked on), the Museum of History and Industry (Seattle), and other organizations. I also served as a historical consultant to KCTS TV's (Seattle PBS affiliate) The War: Stories from the Northwest: WWII.
