My current project explores the intersection of irregular warfare and Civil War memory in the Missouri-Kansas borderlands. Through political rhetoric, historical scholarship, literature, oral histories, dime novels, personal reminiscences, theatrical productions, and film, it traces the gradual "westernization" of guerrillas in American culture and their role(s) in the construction of American identity from the 1860s to the present. I currently serve as Special Projects Manager for The Civil War Monitor and as co-chair of the Southern Roundtable at UGA.
