I am an American intellectual and cultural historian. My early work centered on questions of race/ethnicity, juvenile law, early social science and “deviance” of minority and immigrant children in the early 20th century. Considerations imbedded in my early work have since expanded into explorations of the history of childhood and adolescence, American ideals and their culture manifestations, the history of psychology, the history of sexuality, and the history of science and technology.
