About

I am the Visual Resources Librarian in the Art History Department at Emory University. I received my PhD in History from Emory University in 2014. My dissertation, “From the Lower Sort to the Lower Orders: Labor and Self-Identity in Boston, 1737-1837,” examines how and why Boston’s laboring community fractured into distinct working communities in the early nineteenth century.

My interests include digital humanities, early American society and culture, class and labor ideologies, early photography, and New England race, slavery, and abolition.
