I am from Higgins Beach, in Scarborough, Maine, six miles south of Portland. After spending five years as track announcer at Scarborough Downs, I left to study fulltime in graduate school, where my advisor was Akira Iriye. My B.A. (1988) and Ph.D. (1993) come from Harvard, my M.A. from the University of Chicago (1989). Before coming to Brooklyn, I taught at Arizona State and Williams; I also have served as a visiting professor at Harvard University and at Tel Aviv University, as Fulbright Distinguished Chair in the Humanities.
