Chair, Department of History
I am a scholar of modern European history and specialize in the history of Franco-German and trans-Atlantic relations. I teach a variety of undergraduate courses on medieval, early modern and modern Europe; the history of war and society; African history; world history; and the history of globalization. At the graduate level, I teach courses on modern Germany and the history of the modern West.
My current research concerns the occupation of Germany by the western Allies after 1945 and explores the differences and similarities among French and American cultural occupation policies. At present, I a, at work on a historiographical review of the post-1945 Allied-occupation missions in addition to a monographic study of daily life in French- and American-occupied Germany.
Beyond the College, I have lived and worked extensively in both France and Germany, and maintain an interest in the study of French and German language, culture and politics.
