Nolan_PhotoI am a cultural historian specializing in American literature and women’s studies in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I earned my Ph.D. in 2018 from the University of Connecticut. I also hold a M.A. in American Studies and a B.A. in English and American Literature. My scholarship has appeared in Signs, Legacy, and Journal of American Studies, among other journals.

I am currently working on a monograph entitled “Professions of Intimacy: Work, Reproduction and the Professional Woman in the Progressive-Era United States” for which I received a summer stipend from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

During the 2018-2019 academic year, I will be an Honorary Research Fellow with the University of Manchester, UK. In autumn 2019, I will be joining the University of Manchester as a Fixed-Term Lecturer (UK-equivalent to US Visiting Assistant Professor) in American Studies.
