Current Research:Wild by Nature: North American Animals Confront Colonization, 1500-1875. Book manuscript in progress. My current research examines the ways in which indigenous animals acted as obstacles to colonization in English America by complicating Anglo-American assertions of possessions. This study is a revision of my doctoral dissertation, "The Liberty of Killing a Deer: Histories of Wildlife Use and Political Ecology in Early America."
