In 2021-22, I will be teaching one graduate course, HSTRY 595: Digital History, in SPR 2022. I also conduct independent readings courses (HSTRY 600) as schedules allow. Here are links to some past graduate course syllabi:
I supervise graduate students at the MA and PhD level in 20th century US history, urban history, political history, and the history of capitalism. Full description of the fields I supervise and required/recommended preparation can be found here.
If you are interested in our program and in working with me as a primary advisor, please contact me via email early in your application process. While I am always happy to talk to candidates considering graduate school here or at other institutions, I will not be taking on new students as a primary advisor in fall 2022.
