I acquire books in history and the social sciences, with a special focus on American history and politics across five centuries. I also oversee series on Early Modern German and on Southern African history and my portfolio includes academic and trade books on the history and culture of Virginia. As a transnational historian by training, I am excited about manuscripts that put historical developments in broad temporal and geographic contexts and particularly welcome examinations of Americans’ experiences and legacies abroad.
I earned my B.A. in history from Shepherd University in West Virginia and then an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before joining UVA Press in 2019, I worked at the University of Wisconsin Press and the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture.
