Areas of Expertise
History of the American South
History of Tourism
I am trained as a US historian with an emphasis on the American South. My interests are broad and include history of tourism, identity, race, and women from the colonial period until the Civil Rights movement. I am currently working on a project that examines race, class, and identity through the 1893 trial of two African American men tried for the murder of a prominent Maryland planter. I currently live in Murfreesboro with my husband and three daughters.
