Colonial U.S., Native American History

Ph.D., Brandeis University, 1995

Office: HSSB 4260

I specialize in Colonial North American history, with emphasis on gender, colonization and the lives of Native Americans in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century New England. Throughout my career I have been devoted to creating learning communities, whether in my initial work in museums, or in my work at the university level with undergraduate and graduate education. My museums background gave me an abiding interest in material culture studies, memory studies and the work of public historians more generally, and I encourage students to do internships in a variety of public history settings. I try to read broadly, across disciplines, with a particular attention to the history of religion and the history of the emotions.

Current Projects

  • Rage, Vengeance and Violence: Cultures of Anger in Seventeenth-century New England
    A cultural exploration of violence and passionate affect in all its forms.
  • History, Culture, and Community Memory in Native New England: Frank Speck and "Salvage Ethnography" in the Twentieth-Century Northeast
    I am in the earliest stages of research on a biographical portrait of Frank Speck (1881-1950), University of Pennsylvania Anthropologist and Collector
