After earning my B.A. in English (with a focus on British and American novels) from Washington and Lee University in 1982, I pursued graduate studies in history at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville from 1986-1987, then completed my Master's Degree in American Studies at Purdue University in 1994 and my PhD in American History (with minor fields in Ancient History and the History of Science and Technology) in 2004, also at Purdue. In the meantime and since, besides teaching a full range of courses in American History, Government and Culture as well as Western Civilization (including Great Britain and the British Empire), I have also worked at a number of public history venues in the U.S. (including for the National Park Service and five years at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello) as well as authored entries for American History, the History of Science and other reference and classroom volumes.
IKÜ: Modul BA2E / IKÜ 2-2/2E-2
In this class, students will learn and practice utilizing the “conventions” of several common text types, as well as some of their applications in professional writing in English (including later in the
semester some English translations from German texts), which will not only add to the “tools” at your disposal as future translators, but also broaden your familiarity with the rich tradition of Anglophone writing.
