I have been at USI since 1992. Most of the classes I teach are surveys of Modern European and World History. I also offer specialized courses on topics such as the French Revolution & Napoleon, European Revolutions, History & Film and the Holocaust. Since 2011, I have served as director of the USI Center for Communal Studies. My research is mostly in Modern French and Atlantic history. My publications include three books (The Stonemasons of Creuse in Nineteenth-Century Paris, Feedback: The Who and Their Generation and Paris in Modern Times), and two books that I have edited or co-edited (A New Social Question and The Who and Philosophy). I have also published articles in journals including French Historical Studies, Journal of Social History, Atlantic Studies, European History Quarterly, History Teacher and History & Memory.
