About the author


Candice Rowser began her career as an educator in late 2005 with the New York City Department of Education as a Substitute Teacher. She was a part-time faculty member of the City University of New York (CUNY) from 2008 until 2018, first as a Continuing Education Teacher at LaGuardia Community College and later an Adjunct Assistant Professor. From 2009 until 2010 Dr. Rowser taught at Westchester Community College, State University of New York (SUNY). From 2010 to 2018, she taught college level courses at three CUNY campuses including Kingsborough Community College, Hunter College, and Bronx Community College. Dr. Rowser taught briefly at her alma mater, St John's University, following her graduation in 2010. She taught African-American history part-time at Fordham University for the 2018-2019 academic year. The courses she has taught include: World History, World Politics, African History, African-American History, European History, American Government, and Politics of Economics. Dr.Rowser studied at St. John's University completing the Doctor of Arts Modern World History program which provided her interdisciplinary training. She was exposed to anthropology, sociology, political science, economics, and religious studies and learned how these fields contribute to the knowledge and grasp of historical events. Her Master's degree in Africana Studies from the University at Albany, SUNY has also allowed her to examine the experiences of Africa's peoples, both on the continent and in the Diaspora, through various fields of study. Her research interests include global human rights, particularly the experiences of marginalized communities. She is the author of Broad Scope: The Benefits of Interdisciplinary Training for Pedagogy in which she shares her experiences as a higher education faculty member in history and political science. With a look into her classroom Dr. Rowser wants to share insight with other educators to assist them with ideas for their social studies content. Broad Scope is an exhibition of what an educator with an interdisciplinary education can do featuring fifteen lectures from six college courses. In early 2018 Dr. Rowser shifted her love for learning and teaching to another forum - the podcast. In the Facts Before Fiction Record she includes lectures from her courses also. With this podcast she can respond to the emerging gaps in learning and share with a wider audience. She provides her listeners with commentary on contemporary issues that they have found equally enlightening as the lectures. With this platform she has built on her interest in politics and women's roles in the government with a focus on African-American women.
