Welcome to my blogsite, which has replaced my website. I am a historian of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Europe and do research on Germany in the decades around the First World War. I also have expertise in nineteenth-century German philosophy and social theory. I have a dual appointment in the History Department and the Program in German and Scandinavian Studies. I did my PhD in history at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor and went to college at Cornell University with a major in philosophy. I grew up here. I began teaching at UMass in 2004. Since fall 2018, I have been book review editor of First World War Studies. My picture on the left is from 2009. I have more gray hair now. See my Covid hair photo to see what I look like now.
Email me at email@example.com. Someday I will return to Herter Hall 505.
