Teaching US Diplomatic History

Americans & International Affairs to 1921


This site is very much in progress, but it is designed to support instructors who are teaching with my textbook, Americans and International Affairs to 1921, first published with Cognella in 2022.

At present, it is most cost effective to purchase the book directly from the publisher, but it is also available on Amazon. Via the publisher, instructors can order the book with accompanying online Active Learning materials, including flashcards, reading comprehension questions, and reviews of basic US history.

About Me

I am an associate professor of history at the University of Vermont, where I have taught a range of courses in US history, diplomatic history, and research methods since Fall 2007. I attended the Elliott School of International Affairs at The George Washington University for my BA and the University of Minnesota for my MA and PhD. In addition to Americans and International Affairs to 1921, I am the author of U.S.-Habsburg Relations from 1815 to the Paris Peace Conference: Sovereignty Transformed and the editor of the chapter on “Expansion and Diplomacy, 1865 to 1914” in the 2017 and 2022 versions of the annotated bibliography The SHAFR Guide Online. I have been a member of the Teaching Committee for the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations and a faculty associate providing consultations and workshops at the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of Vermont.
