My full name is Dr. Daniel Stephen, and I’ve taught similar courses at Colorado State University beginning in 2008 as well as at other area campuses. I grew up in an American family living in Britain and later West Germany; my family spent a grand total of 35 years living overseas before retiring back to Ohio. As a civilian offshoot with roots in the Midwest living among army brats, Europeans, and new arrivals to Europe coming from outside the continent, I have many memories of the Cold War, the post-war years in Germany, the sixties youth rebellions, and the sparks and excitement that can fly when different peoples and cultures collide and interact. I feel very passionately about history as a vehicle for understanding who we are and the contexts in which we live today.
