Dante Gabriel Lariccia
Dante graduated from New York University in 2019 with degrees in History and Politics. During his undergraduate years, his research focused on international labor migration, postwar economic policy, and urban and domestic space within divided Germany. His thesis, for which he was named NYU's Robert A. Fowkes research scholar, centered on company-operated dormitories in the West German Gastarbeiterprogramm.
Dante joined the MA program in Global History in 2019 after receiving a study scholarship from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD). Broadly speaking, he is interested in intellectual history and the history of economic ideas. More narrowly, he is pursing several projects tied to German empire and its ramifications for various intellectual trends during the imperial period and beyond. The development of Dante's academic interests at Freie and Humboldt Universität will lay the groundwork for his studies and research in a global history PhD program.
