About Me

I am an assistant professor of North American history in its transcultural connections at Ruhr-University, Germany. My research focuses on nineteenth and twentieth century North American social and cultural history, including Southern history, African American history, the history of race and ethnicity, the history of borderlands and transatlantic history, and gender history.
