Research Interests

I am primarily interested in Military History and Early American History with a particular emphasis on Early American Maritime enterprises. My research focuses on privateers during the American Revolution and War of 1812. Specifically, my dissertation investigates the relationship between privateers and the public sphere by examining how these sailors were perceived, represented, and remembered by the public in newspapers, novels, music, and art.
