Isaac Gradl

2022-2023 Undergraduate Research Fellow

Isaac Gradl is a junior in the history department, pursuing his social studies teacher certification through Princeton's teacher preparation program. He is broadly interested in the history of law, politics, and social movements within the United States. More specifically, he is interested in studying the role of marginalized and minority groups in shaping these histories, and plans to center his junior independent work and senior thesis around these themes. He is particularly passionate about humanities and social sciences in middle and high school education, and how they play a significant role in shaping young people's identities and relationships to others. After graduation, he intends to teach social studies at the middle school or high school level for some time before attending graduate school for education, history, law, or political science.
