Jacqueline Carr, an Associate Professor in the Department of History, earned her doctorate at the University of California, Berkeley. She joined the faculty at UVM in 2004. Previously she was on the faculty at California State University, Sacramento. Professor Carr teaches the history of early America through three sequence courses: Colonial America, the American Revolution, and the Early Republic, and offers a variety of special topics courses and seminars.  In California she freelanced as a curator for public history exhibitions in addition to teaching.  Her publications include, After the Siege: A Social History of Boston 1780-1800 (Northeastern/UPNE 2005) examining how the port city rebuilt itself in the wake of the American Revolution; "Marketing Gentility: Boston's Businesswomen, 1780-1830" (New England Quarterly March 2009); and “A Change ‘as remarkable as the Revolution Itself’: Boston’s Demographics, 1780-1800,” (New England Quarterly, December 2000).  Forthcoming articles include “Local History and the Vermont Borderlands 1790-1820” and “Ladies of Fashionable Distinction: The Procurement, Marketing, and Sales of Women’s Fancy-Goods in Early Nineteenth-Century New England.”  Her current research examines Vermont society on the northern borderlands during the Early Republic.  Professor Carr is a native of England, who lived in the western United States for more than two decades before moving to New England.  Her primary personal interests are working with animals, animal rights activism, and travel – particularly in the United States where she enjoys exploring her interests in community, local, and regional history.
