  • About

    My research interests fall broadly across studies of cultural change. Currently, I am investigating when and why common labels for Americans of African descent have changed over the past several hundred years. I am also looking at when the idea of ranking countries by their level of development became popular. In addition, I am examining the effect of foreign aid projects in Malawi on the attitudes of people living in areas near where such projects are implemented.
