Professor of History.  St. Bonaventure University

I teach a variety of courses in United States History, Public History, and Digital History.  Much of this content is for students, but if others find it useful that is great.  

My research focuses on the United States during the 1920s, presidential and political history, public memory, and economic history (so far).  Here is a list of my books and some online essays. In recent years I've been writing more about experimenting with different ways to teach and understand history, including the games and digital mediums. 

If you are interested in my thoughts on the changing role of history in our evolving educational system, check out Explanatory Footnotes on Substack where I'm writing about these issues. Gabriel Swarts and I have started a series exploring the intersection of teaching and technology with linked essays and podcasts that continues the work we did with the NEH grant Collaborative Pathways (see above).

I live in Western New York: Go Bills! Hence my liking of the Buffalo themed restaurant Krakow, which is a really cool place to visit.
