I am in the process of researching for my dissertation. However, I am still teaching in a variety of ways:
Introduction to Ancient Egypt (this is more like I’m taking the class than assisting, learning lots of new things!)
My Courses at Community Colleges:
U.S. History Through 1865
U.S. History Since 1865
Women in U.S. History
My dissertation looks at how 19th-century religious communities attempted to challenge social norms. I am interested in how they attempted to raise their children differently from the average middle class family. Particularly, it is interested in considering how issues of gender and race were addressed and if, as adults, these children demonstrated markedly different behaviors.
