Rouleau, Brian individual record
Associate Professor

Dr. Rouleau's research and teaching interests include nineteenth-century United States history, the Atlantic world, American foreign relations, and more recent efforts to internationalize our study of the past. His first book, With Sails Whitening Every Sea: Mariners and the Making of an American Maritime Empire, examines encounters between sailors from the United States and peoples overseas during the nineteenth century. Rouleau's current research, for a book tentatively titled Empire's Children: Youth Culture and the Long Nineteenth Century's Expansionist Impulse, explores connections between young people and imperialistic policy in several settler colonial societies.
