Research Interests

I am interested in this history of gender and sexuality in urban America. My book manuscript, Bawdy City: Commercial Sex, Economy, and Regulation in 19th-Century Baltimore (under contract with Cambridge University Press), traces the development and eventual decline of Baltimore's brothel trade from 1790-1915. The book analyzes the in intperplay between changing economic and labor patterns and the evolving sexual geographies and economies of the city.

My most recent project focuses on queer sex scandals in the 1910s and the intersections of queerness, Progressive reform, and evangelical Christianity.
