History of Women, Gender, Sexuality, Race, and Capitalism


UNT Faculty Profile

I teach United States History, and I am based out of the project-based learning programs at UNT at Frisco. I received my Ph.D. in History and a certificate in Feminist Studies from the University of Connecticut in 2020.

My research focuses on the history of women, gender, sexuality, race, and capitalism. My current project examines the life and work of the poet Diane di Prima in the postwar United States. This work traces how cultural producers navigated self-commodification, economic survival, identity, celebrity, and creativity, amid the economic and cultural changes that transformed the United States after WWII. My second project looks at the relationship between feminism and capitalism, focusing on feminist credit unions, banks, and credit access.
