I work on the cultural history of the United States in the long nineteenth century. I have published books and essays on gambling, the history of the book, personal narratives, financial panics, ruined banks, and collections of human remains. My work on burial and scientific collections of human bodies has led to an interest in American natural history, and I have begun research on a new book on the broad circles of early nineteenth-century collectors who traveled the world and found specimens for cabinets and museums.
I am also working on an essay on the place of everyday life in the photographs commissioned by the Farm Security Administration in the late 1930s and early 1940s. The paper grew out of the 2010-2011 Center for Cultural Analysis on the “Everyday and the Ordinary” and from discussions with my students in an SAS Honors seminar on “American Culture in the 1930s.”
