My goal is to help students understand the importance and relevance of history by emphasizing how the world we live in today has been shaped by the past.
My interests span all aspects of American history, but I am particularly interested in the history of American foreign relations in the 20th century, as well as the intellectual underpinnings of American politics and political culture since the New Deal.
My current research is focused on the public and intellectual debates surrounding U.S. foreign and domestic policy during the Korean War. I am particularly interested in how these debates helped set the stage for the emergence of a reinvigorated conservative movement in the second half of the 20th century.
