W. Brands and A. G. Hopkins. I have previously taught history at Tufts University and have been a Postdoctoral Fellow at the U.S. Studies Centre, University of Sydney, where I was then a Research Associate in U.S. Foreign Policy (2012-15). I have also been a Visiting Postdoctoral Fellow at Yale's International Security Studies, and have been awarded the 2013-14 W. A. Williams Junior Faculty Research Award by the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, and the Samuels Young Scholars Award by the History of Economics Society. I have previously been a Departmental Fellow, University of Texas at Austin (2011); Marc Friedlander Fellow, Massachusetts Historical Society (2010-11); Research Fellow, New York Public Library (2010-11); Liberal Arts Graduate Research Fellow, University of Texas at Austin (2010); Canadian Embassy Doctoral Fellow (2010-11); and a Churchill Scholar of British Studies, University of Texas at Austin (2009-11). My commentary on historical and contemporary global affairs has appeared in the New York Times, the Australian, the Globalist Magazine, History News Network, History & Policy, Foreign Policy in Focus, Common Dreams, Not Even Past, the ABC, Canberra Times, and the National Times, among others. I am also the editor of the Imperial & Global Forum, the blog of the Centre for Imperial & Global History. You can follow me on Twitter @MWPalen
