Introduction-David Damas

Hi I’m David and I am a fourth year History student. My primary interests lie in Anglo-Saxon England but they branch out wildly. I am interested in the class because of my heritage mainly, my dad is Greek and mums English and through them I have always felt a strong affinity with Europe. (my dad lived through the Greek junta in the 60s and 70s which relates to this course)

Interests outside school are rowing, hiking, camping and really anything else physical.


I am first year MA student in the EURUS program in the European stream. I am Djamel Khaznadji and I did my BA in History at Concordia University in Montreal. My research interest is Turkish foreign policy during the Cold War.

I am Karate athlete, so training is a big part of my life. In my free time I like to read, write (mostly poems) and hang out with my friends.

Having taken a seminar on hate, genocide, and propaganda last year, I think that taking this class will be a good way to deepen my knowledge. Hopefully I will be able to draw from what I have learned in order to bring a positive contribution to this class.
