Teaching and Research

My research and teaching interests focus on issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality in nineteenth and twentieth century America. My undergraduate course offerings include a survey of women in modern America (HST 237), an upper level course on womanhood in America (HST 330), and a senior seminar on the history of sexuality in the United States (HST 440).At the graduate level I offer seminars that explore the relationship between history, fiction, and social commentary, gender and power, and constructions of masculinity and femininity.
