Bio/Research

My research brings an historical perspective to the study of education, children, and youth in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I focus on children’s varied experiences with social inequality, shaped by race, class, gender, size, and age, and the role that educational and medical professionals have played both in deepening and mitigating inequality. The responses of young people and their families to these interventions are centrally important in my work. I believe that a clear understanding of the deep historical roots of inequality can support and further contemporary efforts to enact and protect social justice.
