Academic Profile

I study the political and intellectual history of the United States to Reconstruction and the long history of American slavery. At the BCDSS, I am at work on my first book, a history of the idea of a “person” in American politics from the Declaration of Independence, under contract with Harvard University Press.

I hold a PhD in History from Harvard University and come to Bonn from previous postdoctoral fellowships at the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition at Yale University, the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry at Emory University, and the Interdisciplinary Humanities Program at Wake Forest University.
