My research on the interplay of ethnicity, religion, politics, and foreign policy during the twentieth century has sharpened my sensitivity to the varied and contested ways that U.S. Catholics have identified themselves as members of a global church, a diasporic community, and citizens of a democratic nation. This has motivated me to explore similar patterns through my teaching into the ways in which Catholics from Latin America, Asia, and Africa have negotiated their identities in the U.S. during the 20th century. At Mount St. Mary’s, I am responsible for covering “American Experience to 1898,” “America in Global Context since 1898,”  “Global Encounters” courses, and religious, cultural, and diplomatic history courses for History majors. I also have experience with community-based learning courses, teaching writing across the curriculum, facilitating digital history and archival-based projects, and coordinating class field trips.
