Scott M. Anderson

MA Student (expected 2018)
Advisor: T. Michael Parrish
Research Interests: My broad areas of historical interest fall into two main categories: the American Civil War and modern American politics and foreign policy. I am especially interested in the relations between policy and action. Currently, my study centers on the impact of religious abolitionism and black military volunteerism on nineteenth century America.
Education: B.S., History, University of Northwestern — St. Paul and Oxford University
Miscellaneous: As an undergraduate, I spoke at several conferences, including the National Conference on Undergraduate Research and the biennial Conference on Faith & History. I also studied abroad for a semester at Oxford University and was a member of the University of Northwestern — St. Paul Honors Program. Prior to continuing my studies in history, I worked as a Customer Success Manager at ABILITY Network and was inducted into the highly competitive ABILITY Network Circle of Excellence. I currently work as a Graduate Researcher at the Baylor Collections of Political Materials.
