Laura Mammina specializes in nineteenth-century U.S. history, with a special focus on the history of race and ethnicity and the history of gender and sexuality. She took her M.A. and PhD degrees from the University of Alabama. At the University of Houston-Victoria, she teaches courses on early U.S. History and the history of U.S. race and ethnicity and gender and sexuality. Her work has appeared in several places, most recently an article entitled ““In the Midst of Fire and Blood”: Union Soldiers, Unionist Women, Military Policy, and Intimate Space during the American Civil War” published in the July 2018 issue of Civil War History. She is currently working on three projects: an edited volume on the Civil War Era under contract with Louisiana State University Press, an article that critically examines historians’ scholarship of Mary Lincoln’s White House tenure, and a book manuscript examining the interactions between Union soldiers and southern women during the American Civil War.
