I teach U.S. History at Middle Tennessee State University. I am also a Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Scholar and a public historian. I hold a PhD from Emory University in WGSS and work in the areas of 20th century U.S. material, visual, and popular culture. I also have expertise in the emerging field of digital history as well as historic preservation and archival studies.
My web icon is both a digital homage to the mythic origins of portraiture as the capture of a shadow, and a critique of the insistence of web communities upon profiles and visible identities.
