From Ruins to Reconstruction: Urban Identity in Soviet Sevastopol after World War II (Cornell University Press, 2009)

Welcome to my website at Dickinson College's Department of History. I hope that you will find some useful information in this site. The navigation bar will take you to several pages from which you can gather more information about my courses and interests. Enjoy!

My objectives at Dickinson are to provide students with the opportunity to explore the past and improve their skills at the same time. I place great emphasis on the ability to write and to clearly articulate one's views. Moreover, students will learn how to read primary and secondary sources with great care. These skills and the course content of historical study should provide our students with the ability to actively engage the world rather than passively accept "knowledge" and dominant U.S. socio-cultural norms.
