WORK IN PROGRESS

I am currently revising a manuscript for publication which explores the history of generational conflict within Anglo-American feminism from the 1870s to the 1930s, focusing in particular on the deep connections between age prejudice and racial prejudice in arguments for women’s empowerment.

My next book, tentatively titled Minors to Men: Maturation, Gender, and Race in the Early American Republic, which will investigate the political significance of manhood as a stage of life.
