Marc Goulding, Ph.D.
Marc Goulding earned his PhD at New York University in 2012 with a major concentration in the history of the African Diaspora and a minor concentration in US history. His research focuses primarily on pan-African movements, black radicalism and anti-imperialism in the early twentieth century.
Goulding’s dissertation, “Vanguards of the New Africa: Black Radical Networks and Anti-Imperialism in the 1930s,” examines anticolonial and pan-African activism in Europe and West Africa during the decade prior to the Second World War.
Before coming to the University of Central Oklahoma in 2013, Goulding spent four years as a visiting instructor at The College of Wooster, in Ohio.
At UCO, Goulding teaches courses on African Diaspora, imperial/decolonization, and US history, as well as classes on topics such as black power movements and theories of nationalism. Future courses in preparation include African History, 1884-1994, and Black Intellectual History. In the past, he has served as the History Undergraduate Advisor, Core Curriculum Coordinator, and Director of Graduate Studies. Currently, Goulding serves as Assistant Chair of the Department of History and Geography, and Director of the Race and Ethnic Studies Minor. He is also a member of the Editorial Collective of the Radical History Review, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal.
