Current Research: Currently, I am researching human-animal interactions in America from the colonial era to early nineteenth century. Specifically, I examine conflicts over access to wildlife that arose between Euro-Americans and Native Americans. My work incorporates an animal history approach in order to show how wildlife acted as protagonists in this story. This research is an extension of my doctoral dissertation, "'The Liberty of Killing a Deer': Histories of Wildlife Use and Political Ecology in Early America."
