About

History is not the past.
It is the present.
We carry our history with us.
We are our history.

-James Baldwin

I’ve posted a collection of projects on this site — all meditations on the histories we carry with us.

I studied history in the American Culture Department at the University of Michigan, where I earned my Ph.D. in 2012. I’ve since worked as the Lynette S. Autrey Visiting Professor in the Humanities Research Center at Rice University, as an Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow in the Museum Studies Program at New York University. I’ve also taught at the Murphy Institute for Labor Studies in NYC and at Washington University in St. Louis.
