I am an assistant professor of history at the University of Alabama. This site showcases recent public history work, offers examples of syllabi, and gives a snapshot of current research.

I practice, study, and teach public history with special interest in museums, digital history, oral history, and community partnerships. My research focus is the post-Civil War U.S. South, but public history work moves me through time and across geographical boundaries. That work has included exploration of the public historical landscape in Morocco; working with Atlanta-based artists and community members to explore southern narrative; and creating a digital archive in partnership with a historic church. I am also one of three members of the independent curatorial collective Selvage.

Please email me if you have questions about my research, teaching, or public history practice.
