I have a Ph.D in history. I started out as a historian of early modern England, but now I'm best described as a colonial Americanist who is interested in trans-Atlantic politics. My favorite century is the seventeenth, although I can talk intelligently about the sixteenth and the eighteenth as well.
At the moment, I am a postdoctoral fellow at a large research university in the south. I will very soon be an assistant professor at another large research university in the south -- I'm looking forward to that very much!
You don't have to ask before adding me. I'll probably friend you back, particularly if we have interests or communities in common.
