Publications & Résumé

Below are copies of articles I have written for professional journals, as well as my dissertation.  The top two discuss classroom pedagogy, in particular how to make history classes more interesting and engaging for students. The latter two come from my professorial days, and investigate historical connections between England's Scientific Revolution and the nation's concurrent expansion into slave-based imperialism.
