My name is Chris Dewitt and I am currently studying for my Doctoral Program in Film Studies from the Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. I completed my post graduate studies from this very University. I am 32 years old. Although I am originally from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, I have lived in the United States for the major part of my life, since my parents are employed here. My Dad is a surgeon and my mother is a hospital nurse in local hospital here in Ithaca, New York. American History Studies has indeed enthralled me and has left me wanting for deeper knowledge, education and learning in this most exciting field.
I have a great deal of fascination for American History Studies. I am currently a lecturer in a New York University for the last seven years and have gained a great deal of experience in this field which I hope to maximize with a Doctoral program in this field. I have also written several papers in the field of American History Studies and also propose to write books on this topic in the near future. My main fields of studies in which I have gained a great deal of master is the American Civil War, slavery issues, independence and after and also includes contemporaneous issues in American history like 9/11, war against terrorism.
