Christopher Hulshof


I am a student of history primarily interested in the proliferation of imperial power during the 20th and 21st centuries. In particular, I find the reassertion of peripheral agency and diminishment of Western exceptionalism in transnational contexts quite compelling.

But ultimately, I just like history. And it likes me.
