Derek K. O'Leary

Research Interests: 

I work, broadly speaking, on the early United States and the World and Atlantic History. My dissertation deals with the construction of historical narratives, archives, and Romantic historiography in the early US. I also co-organize our Interdisciplinary Working Group on the Early US, which brings together graduate students and faculty in sundry departments to present and engage with new research. I completed a Master's in International Studies at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and my BA at Amherst College.
