I am a historian concentrating on nineteenth and twentieth century United States foreign relations/ U.S. in the world. 

 I write on a variety of topics in history, ethnomusicology, and folklore.

I teach courses on United States and Southern history and music and on selected topics in modern Asian history. And one on bees.

“One who is virtuous and wise
shines forth like a blazing fire;
like a bee collecting nectar
one acquires wealth by harming none.”
