Everett Pomare


My name is Everett Fenuel Pomare, and I am a graduate student in the History Department here at GW, specializing in Imperial and Colonial studies with a focus on the history of the British Empire and that of Britain itself from the Cromwellian era to the present. Prior to my arrival at GW, I obtained an associate’s degree from Broward College (2019) and a bachelor’s in history with a focus on British Studies from Florida Atlantic University (2020).  Particularly speaking, I have an interest in the decolonizational and colonial histories of Rhodesia and South Africa from the 1650s to the present, but especially up to Nelson Mandela's election after F. W. de Klerk in 1994. After graduation, I hope to continue onto doctoral work and then onto teaching, research, and writing. I enjoy history (especially that of Britain and its Empire) and hope to do so professionally for the rest of my life. One thing I would wish to point out before I go is that part of what interests me in my work is my finding that where I am (South Florida—Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties—I live in Broward) is very similar, if not almost identical to South Africa in more ways than one. See you soon, and thanks for taking the time to read my short bio!
