I am currently an associate professor and director of graduate studies in the Department of History at Georgia State University.  In the past I have taught as a graduate student at Columbia University and a postdoctoral fellow in Vassar College’s Media Studies Program.  I’ve also led workshops on labor history for members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 3 in New York.

My courses rely heavily on technology and active student participation, using current events and contemporary popular culture to engage students and highlight patterns and processes of historical change over time.  Particularly, I focus on the history of media industries (such as music, publishing, broadcasting) and American legal and political institutions (such as copyright).

Sample courses:

The City of the Future (undergrad capstone course)

Media, Technology and Popular Culture

Bandits, Rebels, and Renegades: Introduction to Historical Studies

History of Television

The United States in the Twentieth Century (undergrad)

Introduction to Graduate Studies

Issues and Interpretations in United States History (graduate)

Theory and Practice of Digital History (graduate)
