Stephen’s research interests are in 20th century U.S. History, particularly Cold War culture. He is curious about identity and the way groups debate the meaning of cultural products. His master’s thesis centered on Folk Revivalism in the late 1950s and explored the way the music was understood and categorized in the public sphere. He has spent several years teaching California History and would like to further explore the intellectual and cultural history of the state.
