Teaching Interests:

Andrew Hartman arrived at ISU in 2006 and is now an associate professor. For the 2013-14 academic year, he will be on leave from ISU as the Fulbright Danish Distinguished Chair in American Studies at the University of Southern Denmark. Hartman teaches and researches 20th Century U.S. History with a focus on intellectual history. He also is one of the faculty members in charge of teaching methods courses for the department's nationally renowned History-Social Sciences Education Program, duties that stem from his experience as a high school social studies teacher in the Denver area.

Hartman's first book, Education and the Cold War: The Battle for the American School, was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2008.  He is currently putting the finishing touches on another book, A War for the Soul Of America:  A History of the Culture Wars, From the Sixties to the Present, which is contracted to be published by the University of Chicago Press. Hartman has written numerous book chapters, articles and review essays in journals such as The Journal of Policy History and Reviews in American History. He also occasional writes for political magazines such as Jacobin, which published his article, "Teach for America: The Hidden Curriculum of Liberal Do-Gooders."

Hartman was the founding president of the Society for U.S. Intellectual History (S-USIH), and is a regular blogger for the Society’s award-winning blog. He earned his Ph.D. from the George Washington University in 2006, where he studied with Leo P. Ribuffo.
