Key Research Interests and Expertise

My research is primarily concerned with the interaction and articulation of race, gender, and sexuality in nineteenth century America. I would be happy to take on research students working in the following areas: gender and sexuality in nineteenth century America; race in the nineteenth century America; history of enslavement on the North American mainland from colonial period to 1861; Civil War and Reconstruction with an emphasis on race and gender; historical biographies (with a particular emphasis on gender and race) in nineteenth century America; African American cultural and intellectual lives.

Forthcoming:

Born to Bloom Unseen? Black Female Intellectuals in Nineteenth century America.(currently in development following favourable reviews from University of South Carolina Press, Dec 2020)
