I was born and raised in the western United States (Nebraska and Montana). I completed my undergraduate studies (BAs in history and in English lit.) in California and my graduate studies (MA in history) in Nebraska. Currently, I am interested in law, especially the concept and practical use of property law in seventeenth-century England and New England. I enjoy skiing, jogging, and racquetball, watching football (on both sides of the Atlantic), and reading and listening to things predating the publication of the Lyrical Ballads.
Message to Students
I check my e-mail at noon on Wednesdays and Fridays (i.e., if you e-mail me in the wee hours of the morning on a day class meets, I will not read your email in time to respond before class). Please keep this in mind if you need to contact me regarding project due dates or absences.
