Thanks for visiting my website! I earned my Ph.D. in History and Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan this year in 2017, and I am currently an affiliate scholar with the Institute for Research on Women and Gender at U-M. My first book project, "Punishing Queer Sexuality in the Age of LGBT Rights," examines what I call the "war on sex offenders" and its changing effects on LGBTQ subjects in the U.S. in the second half of the twentieth century. I also have a second, transatlantic project about efforts to control, protect, normalize, or regulate child sexuality in modernity. My writing has appeared in the Journal of the History of Sexuality, in the edited collection The War on Sex, and on the blog NOTCHES: (re)marks on the history of sexuality.
Check out the press section for two recent mentions of my article "The Creation of the Modern Sex Offender" in the new anthology The War on Sex (Duke, 2017).
