Introduction

As a competitively-hired senior lecturer at University of Washington, Tacoma I teach European and world history. Awards include UWT Outstanding Woman and nominations for the Distinguished Teaching award and for UWT OSCARs Adviser of the Year.

I am active in faculty governance, in professional advocacy with the UW chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), and in faculty labor rights as a member of UW Faculty Forward. I was recognized by the AAUP with “Outstanding contribution: extraordinary leadership and advocacy to advance the conditions of Lecturers at the University of Washington: Courage in Pursuit of Excellence in Washington State Higher Education.” My book, _For God and Country_, can be previewed here: http://www.cambridgescholars.com/for-god-and-country

Current Research

I am currently working on a collaborative world history textbook with Cognella and an article on Pink Floyd's _The Wall_ and post-war angst. I recently completed the Op-Ed Project (http://www.theopedproject.org/).

Teaching

I teach modern European history with a focus on British (mostly English) history as well as a growing number of world history courses and the required research and writing course for history majors preparing to write a senior paper/thesis.
