What's past is prologue . . .
I am fascinated by the ways in which people in the past made sense of their lives and the world around them. As a historian, I get to explore these issues on a daily basis.
This website contains information about my work, the places where I have conducted research, my recent and upcoming presentations, and some of the causes that I support.
