About me

Introduction I am an American cultural and intellectual historian with a PhD in Humanities/History of Ideas from the University of Texas at Dallas and an undergraduate degree in English from Stanford University.

I am a full-time professor of history at my local community college.

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. I am currently serving a three-year term as Editor in Chief of the blog, an official publication of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History.

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
