research overview

  • My research primarily centers on the photographic history of the 19th- and early 20th-century American West frontier in unpublished archival sources, particularly photography of indigenous communities and by women photographers. I also work on projects exploring the history and documentation of underrepresented communities in archives, particularly Colorado's Chicanx community, as well as issues related to teaching students about race and diversity using archival sources and collection development in archives and special collections.
