My research focuses on evangelicalism and fundamentalism in late nineteenth and twentieth century America, specifically the intersection of evangelical Protestantism and American culture. Currently, I am exploring the development of evangelical feminism in America from the 1970s through the 1990s and its role in defining postmodern evangelicalism as well as second-wave feminism.
In addition to teaching the second half of Western Civilization and the United States survey, I have taught upper level period courses including the United States 1900-1945 and the United States since 1945 as well as topical courses in the History of Religion in America, Evangelicalism and Politics in America, and the History of Sport.
