I study the intellectual and political culture of the Early American Republic, roughly 1776 to the 1850s. I received a Ph.D. in history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (go Heels!) in 2003 and taught at Tulane University from 2003-2005 before coming to UAB. I am working on a book tentatively titled Love and War: Thomas Jefferson and the Making of an American Nationalism. A version of one chapter appeared in the Journal of American History in June of 2008 as "Thomas Jefferson's Gender Frontier."
