Event description: 

Greta LaFleur is Assistant Professor of American Studies. Her research and teaching focuses on early North American literary and cultural studies, the history of science, the history and historiography of sexuality, and queer studies. Her first book, The Natural History of Sexuality: Race, Environmentalism, and the Human Sciences in British Colonial North America, (forthcoming with Johns Hopkins University Press, 2018), brings together the history of sexuality and early environmental studies to explore how sexual behaviors were understood in the eighteenth-century Atlantic world. Her work has appeared in Early American Literature and Early American Studies, and her research has been supported by fellowships at the Massachusetts Historical Society (Boston, MA), the William Andrews Clark Library at UCLA (Los Angeles, CA), the John Carter Brown Library at Brown University (Providence, RI), and the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, MA.
