a purpose!

I think I’ve finally found a purpose for this space (after a year!). I’ve decided, mostly for my benefit, to review every book I’m required to read for my first year readings choice. Most of these reviews will be short, pithy, and hopefully help me collect my thoughts. By posting them here, I (hopefully) force myself to keep at this. And perhaps such a project will prove useful to others. Or I will constantly display my ignorance.

Either way, the project begins here.

I am currently a PhD candidate in American History at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York (CUNY). My undergraduate education was at Shepherd University (Political Science & History) and I received an MA in History from George Mason University. As a historian, my research interests include early American history, the early American republic (1780 to 1830), political history, religious history, and gender history. I live in Brooklyn with my girlfriend and our cat.
