- Early modern Europe (15th - 18th centuries) France
As a specialist in early modern European history, my research has focused on connections among religion, law, politics, and memory, especially in the context of French Calvinists (Huguenots) and their history. My current research interests include rituals of public apology and reconciliation, both early modern and modern, and travel narratives. I received my B.A. in History magna cum laude from Pomona College and graduate degrees in History (M.A. and Ph.D.) from Yale University. After teaching at Stanford University and the College of Charleston I joined the Department of History at Colorado State University in 1993. I served as department chair from July 2009 through December 2013 and returned to full-time faculty responsibilities in Fall 2014. I also served as Graduate Coordinator for our M.A. Program in History during academic year 2016 - 2017. My teaching repertoire includes courses on Western Civilization; Renaissance and Reformation Europe; the Age of Enlightenment; Early Modern France; Women and Gender in Europe (1450 - 1789); and undergraduate and graduate seminars. Outside of work I enjoy reading detective fiction, listening to country music, and travel.
Beginning in Fall 2017, I will be serving as Undergraduate Coordinator for the History Department. Check out the opportunities for History majors at C.S.U. at our website: http://history.colostate.edu/undergrad/
