I study the history of environmentalism, consumer culture, and changing ideas about ecology, science, health, and the environment in the twentieth century.
I am currently at work on a book manuscript about J.I. Rodale and the origins of green consumerism, which is forthcoming from The University of Washington Press’s Weyerhaeuser Series.
I teach several courses for first-year students as part of Washington College’s FYS program:
Trashed: Consuming and Disposing in the Past and Present
Lighting Things on Fire: Energy, Society, and the Environment
The War Over Wolves
The Global History of Water
Special Topics courses in Environmental Studies:
The Roots of Sustainability (Fall 2015)
Landscapes of Health (Spring 2016)
Environment and Media (Fall 2016)
Political Ecology (Spring 2017)
