Overview

Research

My research focuses on a variety of topics in the history of early modern Europe, especially in the German-speaking lands at the time of the Protestant Reformation. Current research projects include a biography of the Spiritualist Anabaptist Hans Denck, and studies of literary and lived utopias during the sixteenth century and the development of lay, vernacular theology in the early years of the Reformation.


Teaching

I have taught a wide range of courses on the history of Europe from Classical Greece to western Europe at the end of the twentieth century. I also teach courses on the role of religion in political and social radicalism across the globe, and on genocides in the twentieth century.
