About meI am a historian (19th Century US) MEd in American History-thesis using diary of Boston woman during the Civil War, food historian, Civil War re-enactor, and lover and amateur scholar of Hindi films (Bollywood). I love to cook, knit,spin, sew, crochet and read. I teach and try to excite kids about learning. I love to watch Hindi films while knitting or reading

About my libraryMainly focused on women's history, history of women's medicine/midwifery, Civil War. I have become fascinated with Hindi Cinema in the past few years, and have read voraciously on that subject-ordering books from India as well as finding them elsewhere

I was working on mid nineteenth century travel literature - reperiodizing the influx to the Adirondacks from 1869 (when Adventures in the Wilderness was published) to earlier.

If you are interested in DES keep an eye out for Nancy Langston's new book when it comes out (Toxic Bodies: Endocrine Disruptors and the Lessons of History, Yale University Press) and rent "A Healthy Baby Girl" ( Judith is an amazing filmmaker and it was her first project.
Actually my dissertation is on twentieth century domestic medicine, but I have a particular interest in women's health and tuberculosis. I've used some nineteenth century diaries in past work though and had the pleasure of doing research at the antiquarian society when I was at UMass.

Do you work at Sturbridge village or Old Deerfield? When I was there I worked at the Emily Dickinson Homestead :)
