Education & Professional History
University of California (Berkeley), BA, MLS, MA, PhD
At Carleton since 1999.
Highlights & Recent Activity
I recently completed a term as director of the Perlman Center for Teaching and Learning and, for the first time since the pandemic, led the off-campus program that I teach in Rome with Bill North, History, Religion, and Urban Change in Medieval and Renaissance Rome.
During the summer of 2023, I had the privilege of working with a team of Carleton students on developing a new course on The Global Middle Ages (History 136). I am spending my fall term sabbatical working on the introduction to a translated primary source and continuing to read and expand my knowledge of the global Middle Ages beyond Europe and the Mediterranean world.
