Consumers’ Imperium: The Global Production of American Domesticity, 1865-1920 (UNC Press, 2007), emphasizes that globalization was not merely a phenomenon brought to regions beyond America’s shores by American military might and industrial power. Imports, immigrants, geographical knowledge, and consumer preferences ensured that globalization happened in America itself. Her current research focuses on the local history of the U.S. heartland: Once Upon a Place: The U.S. Heartland Between Security and Empire (Penguin Press, forthcoming). Hoganson received her PhD from Yale University.
