My work explores urban space and culture in the United States. Modern Coliseum: Stadiums and American Culture (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2017) examines how stadiums have expressed and structured the experience of the city since World War II. I am currently developing a project that investigates the ways craft beer has reshaped the urban landscape since the 1970s. You can find the green shoots for that at the Maine Beer Project.

I am Assistant Professor of American Studies at Colby College, where I teach courses on cultural geography, urban history and culture, and the digital humanities. A full list of courses I have taught is available on my CV page; please email me if you’d like to see a particular syllabus. I am also the project coordinator of Digital Maine.
