About Me

Tucker is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Virginia studying early American history. Her work explores the development of markets, culture, and middling identity in colonial British America through the lives of ship captains. Supported by more than ten grants and fellowships, Tucker’s project follows captains from the decks of their ships into plantations, taverns, coffee houses, and courts to trace the changing nature of trade in early America. She is a graduateĀ of the College of William & Mary and an Alabama native.
