About Me

My historical specialty is the history and culture of the First World War; however, I focus more broadly on the study of German and European History; the History of War and Society; and History of Medicine, Health and the Body.  In particular, I enjoy researching how warfare has impacted society, culture, medicine, and science in European history from the late nineteenth century through 1945. My publications analyze and discuss WWI Germany; the history of food and nutrition; homefronts in war-time; the history of disabled veterans; the development of rehabilitation medicine and artificial limb technology; the pedagogy of history museums; health exhibitions; and even the notorious gangster, John Dillinger. I am currently working on two projects: The first examines food, gender, and civilian health during the First World War; the second examines the internment of enemy aliens in WWI America. I teach courses on Modern German history; History of the First World War; Medical History; War and Medicine; and Epidemics.

I’ve also started delving into Digital History & Humanities. Check out my online WWI history project: Carolina in the Trenches.
