Aaron Haberman teaches American political, constitutional and sports history. He joined the UNC history faculty in 2007 after previously earning his BA from Washington and Lee University, and his MA and Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina. His initial research focused on the issue of school prayer, the politicization of conservative Christians, and the larger role of religion in modern American politics. Currently, he is working on a project on the long-distance running boom of the 1970s and the ways in which the discourse on running reflected and shaped the larger socio-cultural developments of that era. His research has appeared in The Historian, The Journal of Church and State, and The Journal of the Historical Society. When he is not teaching and researching history, Dr. Haberman is an avid long-distance runner, training and competing in events ranging from 5K to the marathon.
During Fall 2014, Professor Haberman is teaching the following courses.
- HIST 342: American Constitution
- HIST 480: Sports History
- HIST 530: Writing American History
