    Edward's research interests center on media’s roles in shaping cultural identities and relations between the U.S. and Europe. More specifically, his dissertation project explores where, how, and why flourishing popular magazines in post-WWII France and America constructed and compared each other’s women. Before coming to the University of Michigan, Edward served as a program manager of exchanges between universities in the U.S., France, and Switzerland at the International Student Exchange Programs (ISEP) in Washington, DC. He also taught English to French high school students for one year under a French Ministry of Education and Fulbright Commission program. Edward is a Rackham Merit Fellow and has been awarded a Rackham International Research Award to conduct dissertation research in France.
