My academic specialties center on Europe after 1500. In my research I concentrate on Britain and Ireland in the nineteenth century, especially radical activity in areas such as land, religion, and nationalism. Currently, I am working on a project that examines Chartism, a movement in the mid-nineteenth century that sought to expand voting rights to the working class. Specifically, I am researching the role of William Sharman Crawford and how his involvement with the Chartists enriches our understanding of Irish and British reform movements.
As a historian of Europe, leading travel courses across the Atlantic is an exciting
part of my work. Travel courses are semester-long, three credit classes that meet
for discussions, presentations, and assignments. The courses center on a travel component,
typically a ten day trip over spring break. I have taught two travel courses to France,
and in spring 2019 led a travel course to Ireland for the fourth time.
