I have written on a wide variety of topics including how the career of California activist Carey McWillams anticipated contemporary multiculturalism, David Riesman’s The Lonely Crowd, the relationship of the New Left to liberalism, Southern segregationists’ responses to European decolonization, and country musician Johnny Cash’s politics and life.
I am currently finishing a book manuscript tentatively entitled The McGovern Moment: Divided Liberals in the 1960s and 1970s
I am also pursuing ERC funding for a transnational history of connections between the U.S. and Northern Ireland during the global civil rights era that I have explored in shorter pieces about the travels of Bernadette Devlin and Ian Paisley.
I am also working on a project about the different meanings of racial “integration” in the U.S. since 1900.
