Teaching, Research/Creative & Consulting Interests

Teaching Interests

In addition to regularly teaching the first half of the American history survey (pre-contact through the Civil War), I offer upper level courses on the colonial/Atlantic world; the early American republic; Civil War and Reconstruction; and Native American history.

Research Interests

My research focuses on the intersections of politics, culture, and diplomacy in the early American republic. I am the author of book entitled "Celebrating the Republic: Presidential Ceremony and Popular Sovereignty from Washington to Monroe, 1789-1825." I am currently working on a book length project dealing with the origins of American neutrality as a post-revolutionary concept.
