Getman, Jordi

Jordi Getman at Conference

I am Jordi Getman-Eraso, Professor of History at Bronx Community College. My area of specialty is modern Spanish history, with special interest in the growth and influence of the anarcho-syndicalist movement in the early twentieth century. I have been teaching History at Bronx Community College since 2003 and love it more every day. I’m committed to finding innovative ways to teach that will help students overcome the economic and social barriers that so often stand in the way of their success. BCC students are some of the most intelligent, creative and honest students I’ve ever taught. I learn from them every day. I teach at CUNY and am committed to public education to help empower those of us that weren't born into privilege. We all deserve the chance to demonstrate our intelligence and ability to achieve our goals, no matter how unequal the world becomes.
