Graduate Student

Dillon is currently researching and writing a dissertation on emotionally and psychologically damaged veterans of the American Civil War. His dissertation is a hybrid, combining social and cultural history, as well as military history, medicine, psychology and gender. He is interested in how soldiers, nurses, doctors, army brass and civilians thought about and interpreted mental illness during the war. He is also interested in the experience of veterans when they came home after the war, especially veterans who ended up inmates in the nation's many insane asylums after the war. He is currently living and writing in New York City, and teaching at Hofstra University and the University of Bridgeport.
