Bradley Naranch joined the UofM History Department in September 2011, having recently held a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University and, prior to that, taught as a visiting assistant professor at the College of William and Mary. He is a specialist in the history of nineteenth-century Germany, including its former overseas colonies, and is interested more generally in approaches to modern Central Europe that place its continental histories within larger global contexts. While at the University of Montana, he hopes to complete work on two major projects: a volume of essays on German colonialism and its proximate after effects, which he is co-editing with Geoff Eley at the University of Michigan; and a book-length manuscript for Oxford University Press that revises conventional histories of German national unification by incorporating lesser-known stories of overseas expansion, exploration, and empire building from the 1830s to the early twentieth century.
