1. Hayden, Erica Rhodes. "Plunged into a vortex of iniquity": Female Criminality and Punishment in Pennsylvania, 1820-1860.

Degree: PhD, History, 2013, Vanderbilt University

This dissertation explores female criminality and punishment in Pennsylvania from 1820 to 1860. I argue that antebellum societyâs definitions of proper womanhood dictated womenâs experiences as offenders and as convicted inmates. At the same time, female offenders, through their criminal behavior, actively, albeit unknowingly, helped to shape the same antebellum definitions of acceptable womanhood by exemplifying how not to behave. Once fallen from the realm of proper womanhood, female offenders faced continuous opposition in their pursuit to redeem their reputations. Societal expectations and definitions of respectability influenced the reasons why female offenders committed crimes, how they were treated as defendants during their criminal trials, their experiences as inmates in county and state prisons, and their relationships with reformers. This dissertation emphasizes the actions and experiences of the female offenders themselves, in an attempt to recover the experiences of the women â a shift from past studies focusing on the structure and leadership of penal institutions and reform organizations. My project takes into consideration not only antebellum gender issues, but also the influence of race, ethnicity, and class on female offendersâ experiences. Advisors/Committee Members: Teresa A. Goddu (committee member), Jane Landers (committee member), James A. Epstein (committee member), Richard J. Blackett (chair).

2. Harcourt, Edward John. 'That Mystic Cloud': Civil War Memory in the Tennessee Heartland, 1865-1920.

Degree: PhD, History, 2011, Vanderbilt University

This dissertation explores the formation of Civil War memory through a social history of remembering within the Middle Tennessee heartland in the sixty-five years after the war. I tell the story of essentially two competing conceptions of the pastâa Union-Emancipationist memory, rooted mainly in the experiences of African Americans, and a Confederate-Reconciliationist tradition championed by whitesâand analyze efforts by these groups to locate, articulate, sustain, champion, transfer, and institutionalize memories of the war years. Attention to local circumstances permits me to delineate the process of social memory formation and to detail the ways in which social memories of particular groups either failed to establish themselves in regional consciousness or were championed and institutionalized as a collective memory. By 1890, a Confederate revivalism, which accompanied a resurgence in the politics of white supremacy, dominated cultural representations of the past within the region. I feature the role of what I term âmemory entrepreneurs,â individuals and groupsâsuch as the United Confederate Veterans and the United Daughters of the Confederacyâwho worked to attach broad social memories to the identity needs of social and political groups. By the end of the studyâin 1920âa Confederate-Reconciliationist memory is housed in the regionâs libraries and archives, funded by State government, taught in the regionâs colleges and universities, and inscribed upon the landscape in countless memorials and shrines to the Confederate cause. By contrast, constituencies of Union-Emancipationist memory lose their cohesiveness and lack the resources to combat the consolidation of a Confederate memory cult.

Griffin (committee member), Professor Rowena Olegario (committee member).
