About Me

seneca falls road trip 2013
At Wesleyan Chapel, Seneca Falls, NY.

In July 2016 I joined the faculty of Colgate University as Assistant Professor of History. My research centers on questions of women, girlhood, and religion in late 19th century North America (with a particular focus on American Catholicism), and the role of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies in developing campus histories and public history sites and curricula. [Visit my faculty profile page, here.]

Over the past several years, I have taught courses in U.S. History and Gender and Sexuality Studies at Bryn Mawr College, the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois-Chicago, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. As the CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow at Bryn Mawr College’s Greenfield Digital Center for the History of Women’s Education from 2014-2016, my work focused on the digital possibilities of women’s and gender history research and pedagogy, and the development of college archives to better document contemporary and diverse histories. I advised the undergraduate public history project Black at Bryn Mawr and co-organized the National Council on Public History working group on campus histories during 2015-2016.

I have been involved in a number of other public projects that make history more accessible to a wider audiences — interests that grew out of my work at the Museum of the City of New York from 2001-2004, and that I later pursued as a coordinator for exhibition and oral history projects at Chicago’s Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality from 2007-2014.

I received a B.A. from Barnard College and an A.M. and Ph.D. in U.S. History from the University of Chicago.
