I am a Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholar in Political Science at the University of Chicago, affiliated with the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture. My research and teaching agenda investigates broad questions in the history of political thought about collective power, political action, democratic practice, racial justice, and the relationship between historical narratives and categories of political thought, with a particular focus on the 20th century United States.
My work has been published in History of the Present (Spring 2015) and The Appendix (September 2014), a quarterly journal of narrative and experimental history, and has been funded by the Provost’s Career Enhancement Postdoctoral Scholarship from the University of Chicago, the Beinecke Rare Books & Manuscripts Library Fellowship, the George M. Darr Memorial Fellowship, and a Yale University Dissertation Fellowship. I hold a Bachelors degree from Barnard College at Columbia University (summa cum laude, 2006), and Masters degree (2011) and a PhD (2015) in Political Science from Yale.
In July 2017, I will be joining the faculty at Smith College as Assistant Professor of Government.
