I teach a variety of courses and direct senior theses in the Department of History and American Studies at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia.  I have found that the best teaching is highly collaborative, so I am happy to share my syllabi and read others’.  Please contact me if you’d like to discuss these courses.
