basic information

I am a historian of women’s health, with a special love of the nineteenth century.  I have recently joined the history department at the University of New Mexico. My research interests center upon women’s bodies in the past, including pregnancy, miscarriage, contraception, sexuality, gender, infectious diseases, and social interactions. One of the larger themes I seem to gravitate towards is the connection between bodies and identities.
