I am a PhD candidate in the history department at Loyola University Chicago pursuing a joint doctorate degree in United States history and public history. My research focuses on women and gender, labor, education, and urban history in the 19th and 20th centuries. My dissertation, titled “Useful for Life: Chicago Girls and the Making of Vocational Education,” explores how competing efforts to educate girls for work in the home, office, and factory shaped the development of vocational programs in progressive-era Chicago.
