Weird marriages and weird poems.

As a historian of the long nineteenth century in America, my research presently focuses on how the federal regulation of sexuality in antipolygamy and antiprostitution laws served to police and limit the sexual privacy and bodily autonomy of women who were plural wives and sex workers. I have written, presented, or taught on religion in U. S. history, women in the American West, white supremacy and twentieth-century Confederate nostalgia, memory and landscape in the Latter Day Saint movement (Mormonisms), and relationship plurality in American romance literature.
