Biography

Her research and teaching interests focus on issues of gender and class in early American history. She is the author of two books on that topic. The first, In the Affairs of the World. Women, Property and Power in Colonial South Carolina, examines public perceptions of women in the lower south during the eighteenth century. Her current project, forthcoming from Praeger Press in 2016, is She-Devil in the City of Angels: Gender, Violence and the Hattie Woolsteen Murder Case in Victorian Era Los Angeles. The book explores the complicated intersection of class, gender and social convention regarding women’s proper sphere in the late nineteenth century.
