Contemporary World History

A desire to leverage the potential of liberal education to encourage students to become responsible global citizens is at the core of Geoffrey’s academic focus.
His research focuses on the intersection of the Cold War and decolonization in South Vietnam, in particular how this shaped rural development and nation-building during the First Republic of Vietnam (1955-1963).

Geoffrey has a bachelor of science in kinesiology from Dalhousie University, a masters in history from the University of Toronto and a PhD in international history from Western University. Before IBU he taught at the University of Toronto, Western University and Fulbright University Vietnam.
