  • BA, American Studies, Summa Cum Laude

Research Interests

My research interests within 20th century American cultural history are consumerism, popular culture, and material culture. Specifically, I am currently interested in the history of storage and clutter in the 20th century home and the ways in which the self-help and home organization industries have attempted to tame/rationalize American consumer habits.
