Portrait of Joshua Goode

Joshua Goode is associate professor of cultural studies and history at Claremont Graduate University. His research specializations are in Modern Spain; 19th- and 20th-century Europe; genocide and racial thought; museums and commemoration; and memory. With these research interests, Goode offers a range of courses at CGU that incorporate both his cultural studies and history expertise.

Goode received his MA and PhD in History from UCLA. Since then, he has taught at numerous universities, including UCLA, Loyola Marymount University, Occidental College, and the Colburn Conservatory of Music. Goode has received awards and grants from UCLA (1993–1994, 1997, 1998–1999), a Fulbright Fellowship (1995–1996) and, most recently, the Fletcher Jones Faculty Research Award (2012–2014).

In addition to Goode’s CGU campus courses, he has established an international transdisciplinary course with Bath Spa University that allows Bath Spa University students and CGU students to spend a week studying and exploring the historical sites of Los Angeles, California, followed by a week of studying the historical sites of Bath, England. This successful international course continues to offer cultural and educational experience to CGU students from different disciplines.
