- About Me
I am an associate professor of history at the University of California at Davis, where I teach courses on women, American social and cultural history, and the histories of colonialism and capitalism. A specialist in gender and economy in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, I am the author of The Ties That Buy: Women and Commerce in Revolutionary America (U Penn, 2009), co-author of Global Americans (Cengage 2017), a college textbook on American history in global context, and co-editor of the Oxford Handbook of American Women’s and Gender History (Oxford University Press, 2018). My current project is America Under the Hammer, a history of auctioning and market culture in early America.
