Most of my acquisitions orbit around the ever-expanding field(s) of American history, food studies, and occasional regional trade. I am especially interested in projects that employ interdisciplinary methodologies, articulate a bold argument, and use particular historical perspectives to recast seemingly well-known narratives—or illuminate little-known stories.
I’m still publishing some of my own scholarly work which focuses on the urban lives of eighteenth-century Cherokees, public memory, and indigenous archival construction. You can read my work in the North Carolina Historical Review, History Compass, Early Modern Women, Oxford Bibliographies in Atlantic History, and Indian Cities (Oklahoma, 2022). And when I’m not chasing my kid around, I root for the once-mighty Newcastle United and the Clemson Tigers. I also enjoy reading microhistories, nature and environmental writing, biographies of interesting intellectuals, SFF, and all sorts of creative nonfiction.
