I am in a joint doctoral program in African American and American Studies at Yale. I work in 18th and 19th-century America with a focus on the social and cultural history of African-Americans and women. I am also particularly interested in public history.
I earned an M.A. in History and a Museum Studies Certificate from the University of Delaware before entering a joint doctoral program in African American and American Studies at Yale. My work is centered in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century America around issues of race and gender. I have additional interests in early American foodways and domestic arts, public history and the digital humanities. I also hold a bachelor’s from Wake Forest University and a master’s from Wheaton College (IL).
