As a public historian at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, Theresa McCulla communicates about American history, brewing history, and the work of building an archive with a wide range of audiences, hailing from academia, the public, the media, and the brewing industry.

McCulla’s teaching expertise includes 19th- and 20th-century American and African American history; public history; material culture studies; histories of consumer culture and foodways; and histories and theories of race, ethnicity, and gender.

At Harvard College, she taught as a teaching fellow for “American Art and Modernity, 1865-1965,” for which she won a Certificate of Distinction in Teaching, and “The United States Metropolis, 1945-2000.”
