My work centers on the ways Americans in the early U.S. Republic understood and experienced politics and power. In particular, I’m interested in state formation, race and gender ideology, and the ways rights discourse emerged in the early United States. I’m currently at work on a study that examines policing in post-Revolutionary Baltimore.
