Teaching Experience

I enjoy teaching the bright and motivated students here at BYU with a shared gospel context and a scripturally literate background for nearly all of them. This is particularly useful for discussion in my own specialization, which is medieval European studies. I also enjoy teaching survey history courses for western civilization in the humanities (IHUM 201 and IHUM 202), and introducing students to classic great works of the European past.


Architecture in late medieval Europe, especially England, including an interest in how built structures were used and by whom, and how they were made and by whom
