Teaching Experience
I have taught a full range of British History graduate and undergraduate courses, concentrating on the eighteenth through twentieth centuries. At the beginning of my career, I regularly taught a Western Civilization since 1500 to undergraduates, but for the past fifteen years I have taught British History almost exclusively. Each year I typically teach an undergraduate survey course from 1688 to the Present, one or two upper level concentrated lecture and seminar courses in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and one or two graduate reading seminars and research seminars in: the historiography of modern Britain. I have offered seminars on such topics as comparative labour history; class and class conflict in modern Britain, social and political history of Britain. In recent years, as my research interests have shifted back to the Empire, I have developed an undergraduate survey on the British Empire from 1550 to 1997 and my graduate seminars are almost entirely devoted to the topic of the Empire in the making of British history. Finally, I have served as coordinator and taught in a Department wide graduate seminar in major issues in European History.
I have supervised six Ph.D students, seven M.A. students and served as second and dissertation committee member on countless others. Currently I have three Ph.D students (one shared with Jeffrey Herf) and and two M.A. students working under my supervision.
