L216 Faculty



Jeremy C. Young earned his Ph.D. in United States History from Indiana University in 2013.  His book manuscript, The Age of Charisma: Personal Magnetism and Social Change in America, 1870-1940, argues that the modern relationship between leaders and followers grew out of a uniquely emotional type of social movement, the charismatic movement, which dominated American society in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.  He is the recipient of the Indiana University Department of History's Susan O'Kell Award for excellence as a graduate instructor.  Before coming to LAMP, he taught courses in history at Indiana University and Indiana State University.
