William Parish IV

M.Sc., London School of Economics
B.A., Columbia University

William is a PhD candidate in Transnational, International, and Global History with a focus on Native American and Indigenous Studies. More specifically, he studies the transnational dimensions of Indigenous sovereignty and autonomy in the Americas. William also explores the spatial dimensions of sovereignty, with an interest in how Indigenous peoples spatialize their sovereignty and, in turn, how spaces affect Indigenous articulations of sovereign power. In addition to this research, he has a strong interest in computer science and its use for studying historical spaces. Most recently, William was an inaugural graduate fellow at Stanford HAI (Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence). He holds a BA from Columbia University and an MSc from the London School of Economics.
