My research focuses on gender, race, power, popular culture, and crime in the twentieth-century United States. I am the author of Gendered Politics in the Modern South (2012) and Amazons in America (2019), and I am currently conducting research for a book on feminist pop culture in the American South.

Teaching

I teach courses on the American South, gender politics in the United States, pop culture and protest, and Wonder Woman.
