I am a Ph.D. student (ABD) in the History of American
Civilization program in the Department of History at the University
of Delaware, and I am pursuing a career in public history
I study eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American
cultural and social history. Some of my research interests include the
intersection of material culture and changes in
the body in everyday life and the history of disability, print culture,
the history of collecting, and textiles and needlework.
This summer, I will be a Delaware Public Humanities Institute (DELPHI)
Fellow. You can learn more about the program here.
