Professor Clark teaches a range of courses on the social and cultural history of the United States. Prior to joining the faculty of Montclair State, he taught courses at Tulane University, the University of Missouri at St. Louis, Columbia University, the Van Arsdale Labor Center of Empire State College (SUNY), and Princeton University. His research explores the development of white-collar work in the twentieth-century United States, with a particular focus on labor relations within the culture industries, including advertising, the print media, the broadcast media, and design. Currently he is completing revisions to a book manuscript, The Creative Class: White-Collar Workers and the Making of America’s Culture of Consumer Capitalism, which is under contract for publication with Oxford University Press.
