Bio/Research

Jane Dailey is associate professor in History, the College, and the Law School. Her first book, Before Jim Crow: The Politics of Race in Postemancipation Virginia (University of North Carolina Press, 2000), analyzed the conditions that facilitated and, ultimately, undid interracial democracy in the post–Civil War South. An edited collection (with Glenda E. Gilmore and Bryant Simon), Jumpin' Jim Crow: Southern Politics from Civil War to Civil Rights (Princeton University Press, 2000), continued the theme of African American resistance to white domination from Reconstruction through the 1950s. A third book, The Age of Jim Crow: A Norton Documentary History (Norton, 2008), examines the creation and dissolution of legal segregation in America through primary sources. The recipient of fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies, the American Academy in Berlin, and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, Prof. Dailey is currently finishing a book on race, sex, and the civil rights movement from emancipation to the present that will be published by Harcourt. She is also writing a general history of the United States since 1877 for Bedford Books.
