Mark Hauser

Adjunct Instructor, History


Mark Hauser studies American cultural and business practices of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His dissertation examined mass culture in the First World War, as soldiers’ welfare programs spurred developments in the production, distribution, management, development, and consumption of entertainment and consumer goods. He is currently writing an article on reading and boxing programs during the war, revising his dissertation into a book manuscript, and developing a public history project for the United States World War One Centennial Commission.
