FIELDS: Modern US Intellectual; Popular Culture; Cold War: US and the World
BIOGRAPHY: I examine American ideas and the flow of these ideas within and without of the United States. The minds thinking the ideas interest me as much as the critics who counter them and the public consuming them. It is in the relation between these forces where I hope to contribute a new perspective about American culture in the world.
