Additional Info

Amanda Healy is a doctoral candidate in English and Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan. Her research examines the way U.S. women's writing shaped historical consciousness in the 19th century. Her dissertation, Loving Empire: Intimacy and Expansion in U.S. Women's Historical Fiction, 1870-1900, explores the capacious and persistent historical truth effects of racialized discourses of domesticity that informed bestselling works by Elizabeth Custer, Helen Hunt Jackson, and others.

She posts ideas and inspirations on feminism, pedagogy, pop culture, and history here:  https://www.pinterest.com/AHealyUMich/
