Her recent courses include “Women in the United States,” “The Fourteenth Amendment and the Meanings of Equality,” “Manifest Destiny and U.S. Expansion,” and “The Titanic in History and Memory,” as well as a first-year writing workshop on “History Wars.”

Dr. Threlkeld’s research centers on U.S. women’s international peace activism during the first half of the twentieth century.
