Visiting Assistant Professor of History
310A Dudley Coe Building
I earned my PhD in history from the University of Georgia, where I studied American, environmental and Latin American history. Broadly, I am interested in the intersections of culture and agriculture, poverty and improvement, and land and landscape in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. My current book project, "Everything is Peaches Down in Georgia," chronicles the rise of the Georgia peach as a major crop and a central symbol of the South's redevelopment following the Civil War. Before graduate school, I taught ESOL in rural Honduras and seventh-grade social studies in northwest Georgia.
