About Me

Originally, my research focused on white women in intentional communities in the 1840s. Since 2004, I have worked with undergraduates on digital editions of local historical documents. We have developed expertise and an international community focused on digital scholarly editions of historical account books.

One of my teaching fields is African-American history, and in my courses, students and I always explore ways to understand the past and present of the United States from diverse perspectives.
