Thanks for visiting my website. I am a historian of religion in North America, focusing on the eighteenth and nineteenth century United States. 

My dissertation (to be completed in 2017, miserere nobis) examines American Protestant hope in a coming millennial kingdom of God between 1815 and 1845, paying particular attention to questions of race and the formation of historical self-consciousness in the young nation. 

I have published a variety of chapters, articles, and reviews, most recently "Secularism, Synthesis, and Antebellum Evangelical Self-Understanding" in a Church History forum and "'Modern Christianity Is Ancient Judaism': Rabbi Gustav Gottheil and the Jewish-American Religious Future, 1873-1903" in Religion and American Culture. My reviews of Tanya Luhrmann's When God Talks Back and Simeon Zahl's book on the pneumatology of Christoph Blumhardt were particularly satisfying to write.    

I have taught as an adjunct faculty member at Princeton Theological Seminary (2016, 2017) and Fordham University (2014), and guest lectured in a variety of venues, including Barnard College, Yale Divinity School, and Princeton University. I have also spoken at academic conferences like the AAR, ASCH, and MLA

In January 2017, I began to serve as the Executive Secretary of the American Society of Church History. 

I am grateful that my research has been supported by the Louisville Institute, the Jacob C. Price Fellowship at the Clements Library, University of Michigan, and the Wertheim Study at the New York Public Library.
