I am a PhD student in Modern European History at Northwestern University, specializing in Modern British History. I am also a participant in Northwestern's interdisciplinary cluster program in Critical Studies in Theatre and Performance, and I have completed a minor field in Interdisciplinary Approaches to Feminism and Gender. My current project is a comparative study of interwar theatre in Britain, France, and Germany. My first-year research paper at Northwestern was entitled, "Selling the 'Peace International': The London Commercial Theatre, Cultural Diplomacy, and 'Hamlet,' 1930," completed under the supervision of my advisor, Professor Deborah Cohen.
I also hold an MA in History from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, where my MA thesis was entitled, "Between Entertainment and Elegy: Shell-Shock, Manliness, and Memory in R. C. Sherriff's 'Journey's End,'" completed under the supervision of Professor Lia Paradis. In addition, I hold a BA in History from the University of Pittsburgh, with a minor in Theatre Arts.
In addition to my current research and coursework, I am a list editor for H-Grad, and a HASTAC fellow through the Northwestern University Digital Humanities Laboratory (NUDHL). I am especially interested in interdisciplinary approaches to examining the past, and welcome discussion from anyone whose interests intersect with mine.
