I am an assistant professor of history at the University of Texas at Dallas. I teach courses in nineteenth century America, slavery, religion, and the digital humanities. My book manuscript, tentatively titled "Antislavery and American Salvation," explores the relationship between religious conversion and antislavery. I am the co-editor of The American Yawp, a free and online American history textbook.
