Martin T. Smith, Jr. Fellow


I am a second year doctoral student from Saint Louis, Missouri. I am interested in American history from Reconstruction to the present, especially military history from a war and society perspective that pays attention to race, gender, identity, and mythology. I also write my own mythology in the form of urban fantasy novels.
