I am an Assistant Professor of History at Ferrum College in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. I teach world history, Russian history, the history of Islam, and other thematic courses in early modern and modern world history. My research has been focused on early modern Central Asia, particularly the mining of 18th-century history for 20th-century projects in nationalism and collective memory.
