RESEARCH AND TEACHING INTERESTS

I became interested in history as a means of exploring the ways in which diverse urban populations have organized themselves into social, cultural, and political communities.  My current research explores the impact of post-World War II Protestant ministries on urban politics and church culture.  I teach a wide variety of courses at CSULA, from topical to methodological and local to global.  As an educator, I see my role as helping students to use their understandings of the past to empower themselves and their communities.
