- About Me
I am a Professor of History at the University of Lethbridge in southern Alberta. My research focuses on the borderlands of the North American West, and I am one of the co-editors of the H-Borderlands network. In 2001-2002 I was the first Post-Doctoral Associate at the Howard Lamar Center for the Study of Frontiers and Borders at Yale University. I taught American and Canadian history at the University of Winnipeg in 2002-03, before joining the U of L History Department in 2003. In 2018 I won the University of Lethbridge’s Distinguished Teaching Award. I teach the histories of the North American West, borderlands, historiography and methodology, and world history.
