I'm Dylan Cutt and I am 23 years old. I am from Salt Lake City, USA and I did my bachelor's degree at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, USA. I majored in German linguistics and history. My bachelor's thesis focused on the creation of rum and its trade in the Atlantic. I moved to Berlin because I have many friends here and feel quite happy living in Berlin specifically. I chose Global History because I liked the idea of focusing on specific histories in a global context in order to move beyond maybe somewhat limiting connotations around regional studies, but I suppose I'll find out. I would ideally like to learn more about what global history is throughout the program and would like to focus more on European history but maybe within more of a global context.
