History

Assistant Professor of History

I am historian of modern America, interested in the intersection of culture and politics--specifically around issues of gender and sexuality. My research focuses on the subjects supposedly not fit for "polite" converation--abortion, sex, religion, politics--because in a functioning democracy, the most controversial issues are often the most important. I believe that it is only through rigorous, sustained scholarly investigation and open dialogue among people of varying worldviews that a productive intellectual cutlure can flourish. More than ever, in our digital age, we are constantly bombarded with information. Studying history helps us turn facts into knowledge and data into narrative. Reading, writing, bringing a critical, contextualized analysis to the world around us--that's what history is. It is hard, but it is also deeply rewarding.
