About me

My research interests are in European and U.S. international relations in the 19th and 20th centuries. My book project, The Western Powers and a Polish State, reconsiders how British, French, and American policy-makers conceptualized Polish independence in the era of the First World War by assessing how emotionalized and racialized thinking influenced diplomacy. My teaching interests include the international history of 19th and 20th centuries, Britain in the world, nationalism in modern Europe, and the First World War era.
