About me

Introduction I am the 2017-2018 Teaching Fellow in History at UT Dallas.

I am an American cultural and intellectual historian with a PhD in Humanities/History of Ideas and an undergraduate degree in English.

My current book project is tentatively titled Canon Wars: The Stanford "Western Culture" Debates and the Neoliberal Assault on American Higher Education.

Since January 2012, I have been a regular contributor to the U.S. Intellectual History blog, and have served in various capacities on the executive board. Currently I am chairing the 2017 Conference planning committee.

I am a member of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History, the American Historical Association, the Organization of American Historians, the History of Education Society, and the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing.
