Check out my students' award-winning work. I am available at my office hours and by appointment. My enhance syllabi are always available online and, for those in the courses, even more is available through D2L's Brightspace.


I've written about unsuccessful plotters, imaginary kings, feasting & drinking, preaching as politics, preaching as culture, and blogging and digital history. I usually write about early modern England and Wales, Scotland, and Ireland, and co-author a best-selling text, Early Modern England (now revising for 3rd ed.). I have taught at Cornell, Trinity (TX), Harlaxton (UK), and Eastern Illinois. (My current favorite song is Dice the Boss's 1970 reggae hit "Tea House from Emperor Rosko.")
