American Historian

Biography

I am a historian of the 19th and 20th century United States, with particular interests in American culture, social movements, and the history of emotional experience. I earned my Ph.D. in U.S. History from Indiana University in July 2013. I am currently an Adjunct Professor in the Liberal Arts and Management Program (LAMP) at Indiana University.

I am currently revising my book manuscript, The Age of Charisma: Personal Magnetism and Social Change in America, 1870-1940. My book traces the origins of modern leader-follower relationships to a uniquely emotional type of social movement that developed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
