Konstantin Dierks is an associate professor of history at Indiana University, Bloomington. He specializes in the history of early modern America in the context of the British empire and the Atlantic world. His first book, In My Power: Letter Writing and Communication in Early America, published in 2009, examined political, economic, and social circuits of letter writing and the development of a communications infrastructure in the British Atlantic world from 1660 to 1805. After participating in an NEH Summer Institute on “Rethinking America in a Global Perspective” in 2008 at the Library of Congress, he shifted his research from an Atlantic to a global scale. His current book project interrogates how different constituencies of Americans recalibrated their understanding of the wider world in the aftermath of the American Revolution, and focuses on diplomatic, commercial, military, scientific, and missionary reach of the Unites States throughout the world up to 1870.
