Research Interests

My major concentration is intellectual history and the history of disciplines, especially in an international context, since the Enlightenment. My other major focuses are theory and methodology in the humanities, and the cultural implication of science.
My special interest is research design in the humanities: turning the study of the humanities into projects that pay forward knowledge and experience, not just information.
Rubrics: the Vienna Circle, intersections between sciences and humanities, German Idealism, European Romanticism, Intellectual & cultural history (18th-20th centuries), literary & cultural theory, history of science, psychology, & the humanities, Austrian studies
