About Me

I am an assistant professor of 20th-Century US Social and Public History at Brooklyn College, City University of New York.

I teach courses on the theory and practice of oral history, the history of American popular culture, the history of the American war in Vietnam, and a variety of other topics.

I have been professionally involved in collecting oral histories for 18 years.

In June, 2013, Hill and Wang published my book Bringing It All Back Home: An Oral History of New York City’s Vietnam Veterans.

I describe my involvement in this project here.

In 2007, I prepared a bio for the benefit of my undergraduate students, which is here.

A CV can be found here.
