Sarah Gold McBride

Ph.D. Candidate in History, University of California, Berkeley

My research focuses on the social and cultural history of the United States in the nineteenth century. My dissertation examines the social meanings of hair in the U.S. before the early twentieth century.

I am also passionate about history pedagogy at both the K–12 and college level. I consult on K–12 professional development, I co-founded a history pedagogy working group for graduate students, and in 2015 I helped plan the conference, "Teaching History: Historical Thinking Across the K–16 Continuum."
