My Research

My research concerns how journalists contribute to and are influenced by social and political change.

In 1993, I wrote my doctoral dissertation on how journalists at four newspapers in Moscow, Russia, adapted after the fall of the Soviet Union.

More recently, my work has focused on segregationist editor James J. Kilpatrick who became a nationally syndicated columnist and well-known television pundit in the 1970s and 1980s. That work has been the subject of several conference papers and two articles, “Reaching the Pinnacle of the Punditocracy,” published by American Journalism, and “‘Dear Harry,’ “My Dear Jack,'” published by Virginia Magazine of History and Biography.
