My writing and research concerns the cultural, intellectual, and urban history of the United States in the 20th century. I am interested in the interrelations between ideas, culture, urban form, and politics. My first book was a new look at urban renewal in postwar Manhattan.
I am currently at work on two projects: a study of popular internationalism in the "postwar moment" between WW2 and the Cold War and a long term investigation of the relations between selfhood and metropolitan form.
