About Me

I am a PhD Student in History at Duke University. My research focuses on US-South African relations after the passage of the US Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965. I examine the intersections of social movements and governance within and between the United States and South Africa, focusing particularly on the rise of post-WWII transnational conservatism. My most recent project looks at the South African government’s attempts to influence American electoral politics during the 1970s. I am interested in questions of nationalism, imperialism, cultural transmission, political economy, and race. I hold a master’s degree in history from North Carolina State University.
