Introductions:

Introductions are difficult when they are one-sided, but here we go! I’m a fellow in the Center for History and New Media and a first year PhD student. I hold dual masters degrees (in Deaf Studies and Deaf History) from Gallaudet University and my MA history thesis focused on the events surrounding St. Ann’s Church for Deaf-Mutes in New York (from 1850 to 1905).

I’m interested in US History, specifically the history of Deaf people in the US in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries- but I also have a broader interest in disability, gender and sexuality.
