Fordham University: Modern History M.A., May 2018
Thesis: “Proxy-Wars of Religion: US Neoconservative Theology and Central American Revolutions”
Kent State University, Kent, OH : History and English B.A. (Minor: Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Studies), December 2015.
I am interested in the transnational intellectual / political history of US foreign policy and its relationship to economics, American Christianity, and culture. My research examines the history of multinational organizations, religious institutions and policy institutes, and the politics of international order. In particular, I focus on the influence of liberation theology in Latin American revolutions and the US domestic human rights reaction to US foreign policy in Central America.
