The NACBS Executive is pleased to announce two new officers:
Megan Groninger is the first to fill the newly-created office of graduate student representative on the NACBS Council. Megan is a fourth-year PhD student at Florida State University, and she focuses on 19th century British history with minor fields in gender and sexuality, the Atlantic World, and the Islamic World. Her dissertation examines constructions of motherhood as a site from which to argue for broader social and political agendas from the early to mid-19th century and the way these constructions intersected with both class and race. She is a previous recipient of the NACBS M.A. Essay Prize and has been active in the Southern Conference on British Studies.
David Chan Smith is assuming the office of Associate Executive Secretary on the NACBS Executive Committee. David is Associate Professor of History at Wilfred Laurier University and has published research on British studies from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. For the previous three years he has served on the NACBS program committee. He is also closely involved in interdisciplinary conversations with economics, law and management, and is exploring how historians can further engage audiences in these disciplinary areas. Finally, a committed digital humanist, Smith is creating a database of prosecutions for smuggling during the eighteenth century in order to better understand the political economy of clandestine trade.
