I am a cultural historian, teacher, writer, and mother. I have been at Simmons since 1997, with a joint appointment in the History and the Women’s and Gender Studies departments. For several years, I directed the graduate program in History. I greatly enjoy working with students on their research, especially introducing them to archival research and to work with visual sources.
