A proud native of Petaluma, California and graduate of Petaluma High School, Dr. Ian Livie attended Santa Rosa Junior College from 1995 to 1997, earning an A.A. with an emphasis in Social Sciences. He transferred to the University of California, Berkeley where he earned a B.A. in History with a minor in English in 1999, followed by an M.A. in Modern European history from San Francisco State University in 2001, and a Ph.D. in Modern British History from the University of Southern California in 2010. His doctoral dissertation, "Curing Hooliganism: Moral Panic, Juvenile Delinquency, and the Political Culture of Moral Reform," addresses the emergence of "hooliganism" in early twentieth century London and its construction as a distinct, deviant sub-culture.
