Personal Statement:

I am a second year graduate student in UCSB’s History program working with Professor Erika Rappaport on modern British history. Previous research projects have focused on Victorian prostitution and the global “Tartan Craze” of the mid-nineteenth century (in tandem with the mass emigration of the Highland Clearances.) Generally, I am interested in cultural anxiety, peripheries, marginal figures, and intersections of gender, sexuality, consumption, and identity.
