I study the historical origins of racial and class inequality in incarceration in the United States; the social consequences of imprisonment, sharecropping, and tenant farming; the causes and effects of environmental inequality; and the decline in mortality in the early twentieth century. I am generally interested in historical approaches to the study of inequality.
