Associate Professor of History
In the past year, Todd Estes’ scholarly interests, which extend across a broad range of topics from the art and practice of writing early American history to recent electoral politics, resulted in the publication of three book reviews, two essay reviews, two journal articles and the presentation of a paper at the annual convention of the American Historical Association.
Capping these achievements was the publication of his book on early American politics, “The Jay Treaty Debate, Public Opinion, and the Evolution of Early American Political Culture,” by the University of Massachusetts Press.
Inspired by his projects this past year, Estes has a new summer project funded by Oakland University Research Fellowship. The title of this new study is “The Campaign for the Constitution: Political Culture and the Ratification Contest.”
