I am an Associate Professor of History at Berry College in Mount Berry, Georgia, where I regularly offers courses on modern European history, Africa since 1800, world history, as well as a course on imperialism, colonialism, and nationalism. In spring 2016 I will offer a new course on Nazi Germany and the Holocaust
I am a historian of modern European history with an emphasis on Europe's relations with the wider world, in particular European imperialism and decolonization from the late 1800s to the second half of the twentieth century. My current research centers on European overseas imperialism, comparative empires, Belgian colonialism in the Congo, and colonial culture in Europe. My main current project is the book “European Imperialism 1879-1999: A Short History,” which will come out with Wiley-Blackwell.
I have been a Wolfsonian Fellow at the Wolfsonian-Florida International University in Miami Beach, Florida, a Belgian American Educational Foundation Fellow in Brussels, a Chancellor’s Fellow at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, and a participant in the National History Center's Decolonization Seminar in Washington, D.C. I have lived or traveled in Europe regularly since the early 1980s.
