Christine Jacobson Carter teaches the United States History survey for the most part, and occasionally teaches other courses for the department, including the survey of Nineteenth-Century America. Her own work focuses on the nineteenth-century United States, particularly the Civil War, southern families, and American women. She earned her Ph.D. from Emory University, and published two books that grew out of her work there. The Diary of Dolly Lunt Burge, 1848-1879, was published by the University of Georgia Press in 1997. Southern Single Blessedness: Unmarried Women in the Urban South, 1800-1865, was published by the University of Illinois Press in 2006 as part of the Women in American History series. Both are now in paperback.

Christine has been a Lecturer at Georgia State since 2009, but also taught in the department from 2002 to 2007 as a Visiting Lecturer. She spent the two years in between teaching a variety of classes for Emory, including Civil War and Reconstruction courses, nineteenth-century research seminars, women’s history, and the Survey of U.S. History.
