Though trained as a historian, Bryan D. Price’s intellectual and teaching interests are varied, including memory and material culture studies, utopianism, and public history as well as crossing into literature, philosophy, critical theory, and science and technology studies. He is particularly interested in the intersections of politics and aesthetics. His graduate studies culminated in a dissertation entitled “The Charisma of the Past: the Materialities of Nostalgia in Los Angeles, 1940 to 1960” that may or may not ever be published. He has taught history and humanities courses at Irvine Valley College since 2015. He writes poetry in his spare time that can be found in Diagram, Posit, and Pithead Chapel among other journals. He lives in Santa Ana with his wife, a dog, and a cat named after Pina Bausch.
