Tuning Participant


Elizabeth City State University

Charles V. Reed, assistant professor of history at Elizabeth City State University, is a historian of modern Britain and the British Empire. His research focuses on notions of identity, citizenship, and belonging in the 19th-century British Empire, and he is working on a book project tentatively titled “Royal Subjects, Imperial Citizens: The Royal Tour and the Making of British Imperial Culture, 1860–1911.” Charles is currently the list editor of H-Empire, the H-Net listserv dedicated to the study of empires and colonialism. At ECSU, Charles teaches the world civilizations sequence, for which he is the coordinator, as well as upper-division courses in European and world history. As a teacher and program assessment coordinator, Charles hopes that the tuning process will help him and his department better serve ECSU’s students.
