Hi everyone,

As I prepare for my comprehensive exams in the Spring of 2018, I thought it would be wise/fun/extemporaneous for me to share what books I’m reading to surmount this important milestone in my PhD program.

The three main areas of study I’ll be doing are United States History I (basically US history until 1865), United States History II (basically US history after 1865), and Public History. Each of these three main fields will be subdivided into smaller fields such as labor, slavery, memory, etc.

Follow the links below for more information on how each field will relate to my study of basketball history.
