About:

My research focuses on leisure-time amusements such as vaudeville, world fairs, urban planning, and university education at the turn of the twentieth century.  I am generally interested in spaces in the United States advertised as religious and spectacular that work to obscure the economic networks and material currencies on which they depend (e.g., electricity and copper mining, textiles and costumes, timber and publications).
