Research Interests

I study nineteenth- and twentieth-century U.S. cultural history, with an emphasis on visual culture. My dissertation, “Lincoln’s Ghosts: The Posthumous Career of an American Icon,” employs the theoretical concept of haunting to examine the multiple ways that Americans have kept Abraham Lincoln “alive” through various cultural media, including art, theater, film, and television. Additionally, I’m interested in memory, material culture, print culture, space and place, and religious studies.
