Courses in the Department of History cover a wide range of themes across the
globe. Here is a list of courses which tend to focus on particular kinds of
themes, topics, or areas. Many courses address more than one theme.
States and Societies
I teach a wide variety of topics, including gender and sexuality, LGBTQ identities and movements, cities, the environment, disability, and medicine. What unites my teaching, though, is a focus on social history: The history of “everyday people,” and how their actions, values, and the cultures they created shaped the world. Though I am primarily a historian of the 20th Century United States, the topics I teach often extend beyond those chronological and geographical borders, running the gamut from the 1700s to the present and across the world.
