Professor of History, Northwestern University
I regularly teach undergraduate courses on the Civil War and Reconstruction and U.S. Women's History. I've also taught classes on the History of the Right to Vote in the U.S., Abraham Lincoln in History in Memory, the antislavery movement, and more. One of my favorite aspects of teaching is advising student research projects-- for both undergrads and graduate students. My Ph.D. students study a wide range of topics, mostly in nineteenth-century U.S. history, including African American history, the Civil War and Reconstruction, southern history, the history of education, women's history, and voting rights. I always enjoy and learn from talking history with K-12 educators.
