Curriculum Vita


Research Interests

Trained in English and American History, my fields are Kentucky History, State & Local History, and Tudor-Stuart England.  My research interests are in Southern history, women, material culture, and British history.  At present, I am working on a biography of Harry Innes, an early  Kentucky jurist, a study of a Georgia antebellum couple, Adam Leopold and Sarah Gilbert Alexander, overviews of various Kentucky houses, women's sketches for a forthcoming African American encyclopedia, and a literacy book for adults learning to read. I am a frequent speaker across the state for civic and professional organizations and conduct numerous workshops on a variety of topics.


Teaching Interests

I have taught both halves of the Western Civ. survey, the English History surveys, Tudor-Stuart England, the Senior Seminar.  I also regularly offer a course on Kentucky history and an occasional seminar in both Kentucky history and British history.
