Office Hours, Location and Class Schedule

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 and CSU Fresno. 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. Her book, After the Siege: A Social History of Boston 1780-1800 (Northeastern/UPNE 2005), which examines how the port city rebuilt itself in the wake of the American Revolution, vividly recaptures a crucial yet often neglected chapter in the social history of Boston and the Early Republic. The subject matter of her most recent article, "Marketing Gentility: Boston's Businesswomen, 1780-1830" (New England Quarterly March 2009), reflects the topic of her current book project on middle-class businesswomen in New England port cities during the Early Republic. A native of England, who has also lived in a number of states in the U.S., she enjoys visiting historic sites, national parks, traveling around the U.S., and exploring country back roads.
