Field work in northern Ghana led to David's dissertation on the lungsi drummers and their role in preserving oral traditions of the Mamprusi. Research in archaeology, Islam, and Christian missions help inform his courses in African history and research and travels in Israel, Jordan, and Turkey provide first-hand knowledge of the complexities of the modern Middle East. As former director and occasional contributor to the Heritage program, David builds on these experiences to help freshmen explore the global dynamics that have shaped the cultural heritage of the West.
