HIST 2AH: World History to 1000 CE (Honors Section)

HIST 2A – Syllabus

I work on religion and culture in Tudor-Stuart England, specifically the intersection of official religious policy and local enforcement and (re)interpretation thereof. My current research looks at the dynamics of religious identity formation during the Tudor Reformations through personal and corporate acts of iconoclasm and iconophilia in English parish churches.

My teaching situates the history of early modern Britain within the broader European context of political and religious processes born of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations, as well as tracking the development of world historical processes from the early modern period to the present.
