Keith Woodhouse Assistant Professor

Keith Woodhouse (Ph.D., University of Wisconsin, 2010) teaches courses for the History Department and the Environmental Policy and Culture program. His research interests are environmental history, intellectual history, political history, and the twentieth-century United States. He is currently finishing a history of radical environmentalism, focusing on the ideas and political and philosophical commitments that radical environmentalists held and what those commitments tell us about the relationship between the environmental movement and American political thought. He has taught at several campuses in the University of Wisconsin system and held a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
