Department of History
Senior Lecturer Emeritus in Education
My main activities at Brown involve teaching about the history of American higher education and the history of American school reform. My First-Year Seminar, "Campus on Fire," looks at American colleges and universities in the 1960s. Other courses include a survey of the history of American higher education, the history of intercollegiate athletics, and the history of academic freedom. I also do work on best practices in the teaching of history and frequently consult with schools and school systems that want to improve their history teaching.
