Reflexivity Statement

As a second-year PhD student specializing in Early American History, my reflexivity centers on acknowledging the advantages associated with my identity. As a white male, educated in traditional, privileged institutions, and having worked in powerful governmental and criminal justice organizations, I am acutely aware of the position of power I occupy. These experiences afford me certain advantages within academia, necessitating a critical examination of potential biases in my research and interactions. Recognizing the historical inequities embedded in the narratives I engage with; I am committed to amplifying marginalized voices and challenging traditional perspectives. My aim is to contribute to a more inclusive and nuanced understanding of Early American History, leveraging my position to foster dialogue and promote diversity within the academic realm.
