I'm a historian, writer, musician, and activist. I'm currently Visiting Professor of History at Averett University. In the past four years, I've held research positions at the London School of Economics (Cañada Blanch Centre for Spanish Studies) and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Grup d'Estudis sobre República i Democràcia), and teaching positions at the University of Miami (Spanish history) and Penn State University Behrend (Russian History).
I am a historian of Europe and Russia specializing in modern Spain and the Soviet Union. My forthcoming book, Stalinism on Trial: Communism and Republican Justice in the Spanish Civil War (Sussex Academic Press), looks at justice, political repression, and communism during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939. The work draws on research conducted over the last decade in archives in Salamanca, Madrid, Barcelona, Vienna, London, and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
