I am a PhD student in History at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana. More specifically, I work in post-Civil War U.S. History with an emphasis on subjects related to religious history and the influence of religion in American politics and culture. This blog is intended to be both a professional and personal space, a place to think through academic issues as well as other topics outside of my immediate work including music, literature, and culture.
My wife and I live in Lafayette with our cat, among stacks of books that are constantly growing and an always flowing stream of music. He can be reached at dburrows AT purdue.edu.
