Timothy Haggerty's research interests examine changing roles of masculinity and the role of the state in formulating male identities in the nineteenth and twentieth century. This research has produced work that examines new cultural roles for men, as well as examining policy issues concerning sexuality and military service.
Besides his historical work, his satirical commentary appears in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette frequently.
In support of his dissertation research, he was awarded a Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation Dissertation Fellowship, and, with Jared Day, has received support from the New-York Historical Society and the Bibliography Society of America to support current work on the satirical newspapers of antebellum New York.
