J. Michelle Coghlan

  • Multi-disciplinary study of the cultural legacy of the Paris Commune in both mainstream and leftist U.S. memory
  • Contributes to recent work on the global dimensions of pre-Popular front radical culture in the US
  • Addresses a critical ongoing blind spot in American Studies by extending the borders of transatlantic affiliation beyond the confines of Anglo-American attachments
