Bio Sketch:

My specialization is U.S. intellectual and cultural history. My research and teaching interests include the history of philosophy, political and social theory, religion, literature, and the visual arts; the transatlantic flow of intellectual and cultural movements; print culture; and cultural studies. I teach a range of courses on U.S. thought and culture, and intellectual and cultural history from a transnational perspective.
