Casey L. Green

Casey Green, PhD candidate, University of ConnecticutOriginally from southern Louisiana, I graduated summa cum laude from Hamilton College in 2009 with a B.A. in History and Classical Languages.  My interest in Early American history began early.  I completed my first major research project in high school.  As an undergraduate, I was interested in the concept of Republican Motherhood, which led me to complete an honors thesis on that topic.

Since coming to graduate school, my interests have changed somewhat.  I now study the history of the body in America during the long eighteenth century.  Particularly, I am interested in the history of disability.  My current research focuses on disabled veterans’ petitions and how the state understood its responsibilities to disabled soldiers.  My advisor is Cornelia H. Dayton.
