The author of "Small Island, Big History" (2016), a book examining British history through the lens of empire and imperialism, and a contributing editor of "Unfolding the Thread of Time: 27 Texts on Greek and World History" (2017), Christopher Berg’s research interests include citizenship, curriculum history, historical thinking, teaching and learning, and creating a “usable” past in the twenty-first-century classroom. His current book project under contract with Palgrave Macmillan (co-edited with Theodore Christou), "The Palgrave Handbook of History and Social Studies Education," examines how historical thinking is currently conceptualized and applied in secondary and higher education in international contexts.
His public outreach extends internationally to the United Kingdom (UK), where he is a contributor to Ancient History Encyclopedia, the global leader in ancient history content online, boasting the highest number of monthly visitors of any dedicated website, and to southeastern Europe, where he has been a contributing author for Historical Quest, a digital world history magazine in Athens, Greece.
Christopher’s research has been published in scholarly journals such as the Journal of Research Initiatives, Curriculum History, SAGE Open, The International Journal of Learner Diversity and Identities, Journal of Elementary and Secondary Education, Reviews in History, a publication of the Institute for Historical Research, London, and De Re Militari, a publication of the Society for Medieval Military History.
Christopher earned a Ph.D. in Education with a specialization in Curriculum and Teaching and an M.A., summa cum laude, in World history with minor fields in modern Europe and U.S. history.
