Research Interests

My current research focuses on the intersections between religious history, evangelicalism, and culture in the late 20th and early 21st century United States. I also have an abiding interest in the history of the American Civil War: how the connections between race, religion, politics, citizenship, and martial volunteerism affected local and national history.

Exam fields: American Religious History (dissertation field), American History up to 1865 (major field), American History since 1865 (major field), Reformation (minor field), Moderation, Virtue, and Providence in American Legal Thought (outside field)
