Michael Redman
  • Graduate Fellow 2002-2003


Michael Redman earned a B.A. in History from Tennessee Technology University in 1992, and a M.A. in History from the University of Tennessee in 1995. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Tulane’s Department of History. In 1997, he was the recipient of the history department’s Hogan award for outstanding teaching.

Michael works on censorship in early modern England. His research describes how conflicts between printers and the state transformed the popular image of truth and reshaped attitudes concerning the practice of both truth-telling and lying. He is completing his dissertation, “Censorship and the Politics of Culture: Lying and Telling the Truth during the Personal Rule of Charles I”, under the direction of Professor Linda Pollock in the Department of History.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
