Alexi Garrett

Ph.D. Candidate, University of Virginia

    My dissertation analyzes how feme sole businesswomen managed their slave-manned enterprises in the early national South. I grew up in Iowa City, and received my B.A. in History, English, and Women’s Studies from St. Olaf College. Before graduate school, I worked for Oxford University Press and Macmillan Learning in New York City, and even dug up a Spanish silver coin at Jamestown. 

    Ph.D., Early American History, University of Virginia (expected Spring 2019)
    M.A., History, University of Virginia, 2016
    B.A., St. Olaf College, 2012
