Teaches one course a year, “Cultural Institutions, Memory, and Politics,”a graduate seminar that draws on her twenty years experience in Washington, DC as the lobbyist for the historical profession. This course fulfills requirements for all of the public history tracks and for a minor field for the MA and PhD programs. In 2003 Oxford University Press published her Landmarks of American Women’s History.


I recently completed a three-year term on the Executive Board of the Organization of American Historians. In July, 2004 spoke at the Regional OAH meeting in Atlanta on a panel on the Reconstruction History Initiative in Beaufort County. In November 2004 I appeared on a panel at the Baltimore annual meeting of the National Council of Social Studies on Teaching with Historic Places. In March 2005 I will be the keynote speaker for a conference at Arizona State University for a collaborative of representatives of Women’s Historical Sites. My current research interests include the Reconstruction period in Beaufort County, and I am writing a history of Fripp Island, South Carolina.
