I teach undergraduates about the early modern world, early modern England, modern Britain and the British Empire, as well as researching and writing history. I teach graduates about early modern revolutions, early modern society, as well as historiography. I teach both graduates and undergraduates Irish history. See my personal site for information on my students' award-winning work. I am available at my office hours and by appointment

Research

I have published on the political, religious, local, and cultural history of early modern England and Wales, on history and digital technology, and co-authored a best-selling text, Early Modern England (now revising for third edition). I wrote an B.A. thesis at Brown on Norfolk agriculture, an M.Phil. thesis at Cambridge on Norfolk smuggling, and a PhD thesis at Cornell on Welsh Marches politics and religion. I have taught at Cornell, Trinity (TX), Harlaxton (UK), and Eastern Illinois
