Research Description

My main interests pertain to the history of U.S. empire in the long nineteenth century, stretching through World War I.  I have written on masculinity and policy making around 1898, globavore consumption, and U.S. empire more generally.  My book-in-progress takes the American heartland as a starting point for tracking histories of border brokering, human mobility, geographic consciousness, imperial piggybacking, and farmers' cross-border alliances.  Also of interest:  histories of gender and sexuality, militarism and war, colonialism and globalization, agriculture and the environment, and entanglements across empires, as well as food history, material culture studies, and animal studies.  Since the 2016 election, I have become increasingly curious about William Howard Taft.
