Jacob E. Hiserman
MA Student (expected 2018)
My broad interests consist of American religious, intellectual, and cultural history with two specific subfields: nineteenth century religious history and the history of American higher education. As regards the first, I concentrate on the cultural impact of religious ideas through mediating institutions. As regards the second, my focus rests on transatlantic continuities between European and American higher education. I also have a burgeoning interest in the confluence of millennialism and nineteenth century American higher education.
