About Caroline Greer
Hello! My name is Caroline Greer and I am a first-year Ph.D. at George Mason University’s History Department. I also hold a Digital History Fellowship at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. I have an M.A. in History from Auburn University and a B.A. in History from Louisiana State University. My current research focuses on female preachers in the early republic as well as transatlantic religious networks between America and Britain.
I am also highly interested in public and digital history and have worked with the Institute of Southern Jewish Life with updating their encyclopedia and adding timelines to the site. For over a year I worked with the Encyclopedia of Alabama on entries related to Alabama’s Bicentennial, and I worked on a team that created an exhibit about baskets at Old Alabama Town in Montgomery, Alabama that was presented from December 2019 to February 2020, also in honor of the Bicentennial. The exhibit was entitled “Woven Into Our History: Alabama’s Use of Baskets” and included a live demonstration of basket weaving by artisan Estelle Jackson.
