Biography

Jacqueline is received her Ph.D. in history at Arizona State University in May 2019.  Her dissertation, By the Labors of Our Hands: An Analysis of Labor, Gender, and the Sisters of Charity in Ohio and Kentucky, 1812-1852, participates in a growing effort to highlight the contributions of women religious and lay Catholics within American history. She is currently working on her first book manuscript, which examines Catholicism in the antebellum South, sisters as slaveholders, and the concept of "problematic women" - women who organized efficiently and perform significant labor for their community, but also remained active in upholding the structures of race, class, and gender.

As an instructor, Jacqueline is enthusiastic about teaching the introductory surveys to American histories as a way to get students of all majors to learn about the complexities of the nation's past.  Her teaching philosophy emphasizes student participation, primary source analysis, and scaffolding exercises to improve students' ability to create and defend an argument, analyze multiple historical perspectives, and overall clarity of communication and writing - skills that benefit students of all majors. Collaborating with students in the classroom to better understand their needs and interests is her favorite aspect of teaching.
