Nineteenth-Century American Politics and Political Culture, American Civil War, Transnational Women's and Gender History


I specialize in antebellum and Civil War-era political and cultural history. My research interests concern the interplay between Democratic Party politics, gender conservatism, and the coming of the American Civil War.

I passed my comprehensive examinations in United States History to 1877, Nineteenth-Century American Political Culture, and Transnational Women’s and Gender History
