Several outstanding professors in the College of LAS have been selected by their peers to receive named professorial positions, which provide financial assistance to support their research and teaching duties.
- Race Relations, African American, History of Sexuality
My research focuses on race, politics, and sexuality in modern America, and how struggles over social difference and belonging unfolded in cities and institutions. I am also interested in the writing of biography and public history, particularly in how historians can address important social issues for audiences within and outside the university.
