Currently, I am the Coordinator of the Reading History Initiative, an MTSU program that links reading classes with US History surveys. I am trained as a US historian with an emphasis on the American South. My interests are broad and include the 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.
