Matriculation Date:

After 15 years of historic restoration in tile and stone work, I returned to get my MA in US History in 2009 at Western Carolina University, focusing on Cherokee studies and Native American preachers. At UGA, as a student of Claudio Saunt, I have expanded my research to include the Carribean. I also work in hymnody and ethnomusicology advised by Jean Ngoya Kidula. I focus on multi-ethnic mission communities that included Indians, slaves, runaway slaves, and German and English-speaking missionaries, exploring the ways Christian ideologies were translated into functional community practices and stable transnational identities during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
