I am a historian of early America and the nineteenth-century United States with research interests in women, gender and power, race, slavery, and religion. My current book-length project examines the relationship between puritan New England's religious culture and attitudes about gender, race, identity, and freedom during the seventeenth century. It explores the multiple ways that women were key participants in and patrons of their individual congregations and shapers of both their and their family's religious experiences within a decidedly patriarchal culture.
