Research Interests

I am strongly interested in the history of the Appalachian South with a focus on the racial attitudes and beliefs of middle class mountaineers. I am particularly intrigued by the role of tourism and business in the creation of the racial memories of white and black mountaineers during the twentieth century. My research focuses on determining why these memories developed the way they have and how these memories impacted the way that integration occurred throughout the mountain South.
