I teach the U.S. history survey and the history of American immigration. I am currently researching the development of vaudeville and cinema during the Gilded Age.

I bring my students to the archives to study early 20th-century popular culture. By closely examining original documents including amusement guides and transit maps, students better understand the rise of mass culture and how it shaped the modern urban experience.
