Research

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 on The University of Washington Press’s Weyerhaeuser Series.
