I'm entering the final year of my PhD program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This year is focused on my dissertation project (see more over at #foodherstory or on my Twitter).

In the meantime, please take a look at some of my previous work:

Historical and contemporary research on pickles for Chef Vivian Howard for her presentation at the 2019 Chow Chow Festival in Asheville, NC. See the culmination of that research in this map (designed by Margaret McNealy).

My Master's thesis, "'Civilized Tinklings': Gentility, Ritual, and Social Distinctions in the Southern Tea Ritual"

A digital curation project (in progress), THE BLACK DRINK: A Decolonized Native American Tea History

Modern Austen. A collection of modernized historical recipes from Jane Austen's life and texts. These posts and recipes draw on some of my earliest academic research on Austen's literature and gastronomic gentility.
