I’m a doctoral candidate in History at Loyola University Chicago. My interests—broadly reflected in this blog—include 20th-century US cities, popular culture, and public history. My dissertation deals with the construction and uses of ‘cultural diversity’ in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood in the context of urban renewal and community activism from 1945 to 1981. I also contribute to The Lakefront Historian, a group blog associated with the Loyola Public History graduate program.
