Publications

I have published three books. My first book, New Orleans on Parade, examines the role that tourism played in transforming the political, economic, social, and cultural contours of New Orleans from World War II through the early twenty-first century. My second book, American Tourism, is a co-edited volume of thirty-five essays that reveal the fascinating stories behind many of the most iconic destinations in the United States. My newest book, Believing in Cleveland, explores how civic and business leaders used image-making in an effort to reimagine and revive Cleveland in the decades after World War II.

My scholarship also appears in articles, chapters, and other essays, including in The Journal of American History, Journal of Planning History, Journal of Urban HistoryGeorgia Historical QuarterlyLouisiana History, The Metropole, Oxford Encyclopedia of American Urban HistoryPlanning Perspectives, Reviews in American History, Belt Magazine, Encyclopedia of Cleveland History, Issues: Insights from the Social Sciences, Oxford Research Encyclopedia in American History, Zócalo Public Square, and in edited volumes published by Rutgers University Press and the University of Alabama Press.
