Travis E. Ross

Historian of capitalism, knowledge, and the Pacific World

About me

Headshot of Travis E. Ross

I am a researcher, teacher, and public historian with a PhD in history from the University of Utah. Originally from western Montana, I currently live with my wife and two children in central Connecticut and teach history at Yale University.

This fall I am excited to be teaching History 141: The American West, a survey with a long and storied tradition at Yale College that has not been taught recently. I am also working on my book manuscript and a couple of supporting articles that examine the intersection between the history of knowledge and the history of capitalism in the nineteenth century.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in collaborating on a panel proposal for an upcoming conference.
