Candidate for Executive Council (2023-25)
I received my PhD in history from University of Notre Dame in 2013, and I am currently a tenured and associate professor at Pepperdine University. I have taught in the Great Books, history, humanities, and American studies programs. Although I didn’t work specifically on religious history in graduate school, my last five years have seen a focus on the history of Catholicism in South Vietnam and the history of Vietnamese Catholic refugees in the US. I am also serving as coordinator of the Global Vietnamese Catholicism project, which is under the Initiative for the Study of Asian Catholics based at the National University of Singapore. Having served as a grant reviewer for the ACHA, I am humbled by this year’s nomination to the executive council.
