Research interests

I view myself as a cultural historian of the U.S. military. I am principally concerned with exploring the various narratives told by and about the U.S. military in the 20th century – both inside and outside the United States – and with tracing the effects of those stories on American society, U.S. foreign policy, and the world. My work crosses over into the fields of international history and globalization studies, military history, American Studies, history of memory and trauma, and civil-military relations.
