Research Interests

I am broadly interested in cultural histories of the early and nineteenth-century United States. My work currently explores the relationships between reform movements and migrations in the first half of the nineteenth century. It asks how refomers interpreted and debated the moral, intellectual, and political dimensions of migration. Whenever possible, I also enjoy nurturing interests in the histories of print, reading and writing, landscape, photography, and the supernatural.
