In my capacity as a lecturer in history, I have offered survey courses on U.S. and world history, as well as courses on 18th-Century North America, and the 19th-Century United States. I also teach graduate seminars on Georgia History and Pedagogy for Historians.

My publications have focused on the cultural and religious sources on which white slaveholders' based their assumptions about moral political power in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century South. My current research examines the relationship between the private and public worlds of Thomas Jefferson.
