John is a graduate student in the Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin. A specialist in the study of modern international relations and domestic politics on both sides of the Atlantic, he is currently writing an MA thesis on the social, cultural, and intellectual history of the American foreign service at the beginning of the 20th century. His research will gauge the impact of Progressive-era gender politics, cultural anxiety, and the “quest for national efficiency” on the behavior of the institutions and professional diplomats responsible for making American foreign policy at the zenith of American power.

John received his BA at the University of California, Berkeley, from which he graduated with High Honors and Highest Distinction in 2017. At UT, he is a Graduate Student Fellow at the Clements Center for National Security and has appeared as a guest on The Slavic Connexion, a podcast affiliated with the Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies. He speaks French and is developing a reading proficiency in German.
