Born and raised in New Jersey, Michael has studied American foreign policy and transatlantic relations since 2001. He has taught and researched at University College Cork (National University of Ireland) on US history in the Progressive Era and Cold War before coming to Northumbria. His current book, Liberty and American Anti-Imperialism, 1898-1909 explores the history of opposition to early twentieth century American foreign policy. Although living on this side of the “pond” for some time, Michael is a stalwart baseball fan and still cannot grasp score-less sports.
