Matthew Bloom

At Concordia since 2010, I am Associate Professor of History and Chair of the History Department. Before moving to Texas, I taught at Heidelberg University (the one in Ohio, not the one in Germany) and Bowling Green State University (in Ohio, not Kentucky). I earned my PhD from BGSU where my dissertation was on the economic development of northwest Ohio in the nineteenth century—in other words, mud and ditches. You could say I studied draining the swamp before it was trendy.
