B.A., Arizona State University, History
I am a world historian whose research focuses on race in the British Empire in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. My broader research and teaching interests include modern Europe, nations and empires, settler colonialism, historical linguistics, and global book history. I’ve previously taught world and European history at Northeastern University in Boston and at Chandler–Gilbert Community College outside Phoenix. I had a few previous careers before landing in academia, with jobs ranging from teaching English in Egypt to doing festival IT work in Telluride, and I’ve worked or done academic research in six countries on four continents. My nonacademic interests include cooking, Linux, photography, and speculative fiction and worldbuilding.
