RECENT and UPCOMING EVENTS
MY LATEST RESEARCH
Earlier research of mine about indentured servants alerted me to the unexpected demand of teenage girls as household help. I am pursuing research to find out more about the role of girls, kin as well as servants, in families that made their living in the eighteenth century.
I am working on a monograph that focuses on how German-speaking immigrants and settlers in early America defined and re-defined their identity. Particular focus is on the role Protestant ministers and the members in their households played in settting examples.
