Current Projects

  • ‘”The veryest rake and the worst of husbands in the world’: Exclusivity and the Gentry Family in Early Eighteenth-Century England.” Seminar paper in progress.
  • I am currently working with a set of 17th and 18th-century family letters that explore the migration of an English family of the gentry class to the emerging colony of South Carolina. Through these letters, analyzed alongside court documents, probate records, and Colonial office records, we see how family relationships, inheritance, objects, and perceptions of class played a role in the formation of early American identity.
