I am Associate Professor of History at Lamar University in Beaumont, Tx. I study the cultural history of the early 19th century United States with a focus on the West, expansion, manliness, adventurism, and storytelling. I am the author of The American Elsewhere: Adventure and Manliness in the Age of Expansion (2017); editor of The Martial Imagination: Cultural Aspects of American Warfare (2013) and author of More Zeal than Discretion: The Westward Adventures of Walter P. Lane (2008).
