I am a first-year history PhD student. My (current) research interest is in nineteenth century U.S. history, specifically how the development of “republican motherhood,” following the Revolution, led to a growth in education for women and how this led to a generation of liberal reformers and a women’s rights movement. Additionally, I am interested in an intellectual history of the period--how divergent ideas of nationalism, citizenship, and of Union played a role in major conflicts and how we might understand the role of women in these contexts.

Paper presented: “The Solitude and Solidarity of Négritude,” a study of the Francophone Négritude movement of the 1930s, focusing on Aimé Césaire and Léopold Sédar Senghor’s contributions. The study weighs the movement’s aim to unify and cultivate Black consciousness across Africa and its diaspora with the problem of further mythicizing and othering African culture.
