In the collegiate classroom, I especially enjoy exploring with students the global, political, and religious dimensions of twentieth century US history.
Presently, I’m an Assistant Professor of History at Hillsdale College in Michigan, where I teach the US survey, as well as upper-level seminars on American foreign relations, American religious history, and the history of American capitalism.
During the 2021 Fall Semester, I received the Emily Daughtery Award for Teaching Excellence at Hillsdale.
From 2017 to 2018, I taught US history in an international setting at the University of Heidelberg’s Center for American Studies, with undergraduate seminars offered in the fields of US foreign policy and American religious history.
Justice is at the heart of my pedagogy. A fellowship at the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Social Concerns especially shaped this conviction within me. This teaching apprenticeship afforded opportunities to lead and facilitate several service-learning programs, including the Center’s Summer Service Learning Program, the Urban Plunge program, the Social Concerns Seminar on L’Arche Communities, and the Common Good Initiative.
