My areas of expertise include American cultural history with specialties in African American studies and Women’s Studies. Additionally, I work in the allied fields of public scholarship and digital humanities. I have written and published on the lives of artists and architects and the meanings of public housing, memorials, and art. I received a Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Maryland, and I have taught at University of Maryland, University of Michigan, and Miami University. I love archival research, too. In fact, I love archives almost as much as I love large scale puppets for procession and parade.
