I have a book out this last year: The End of Public Execution (UNC Press).  Here's an excerpt and a brief overview of a theme -- "Confounding White Supremacy." I've also done a few interviews and presentations: A New Books Network interview; A short clip or the full interview with the "Tattooed Historian;" a presentation to my hometown Virginia Museum of History and Culture, on YouTube or just audio. I also published a short piece on writing during Covid that stems from writing the book.

Fall 2023 courses:

  • HIST 111 -- Founding a Nation: U.S. History to 1877
  • HIST 275 -- History of U.S. Popular Culture
