I am a Ph.D. student studying material culture through the American Civilization Program. My scholarship focuses on the intersection of craftsmanship, historical memory, and cultural nationalism in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Of particular interest is the reproduction furniture industry and the way both high-end and mass-manufactured reproductions of early American furniture shaped notions of citizenship, race, and heritage among cabinetmakers and consumers throughout the Colonial Revival (1876-1945).
