The Department of History is pleased to welcome two new instructors, Tucker Adkins and Camille Goldmon. Read more about what they bring to the Department and to UTC below.
Tucker Adkins comes to UTC from The Florida State University, where he is working on his Ph.D. in American Religious History.
Mr. Adkins is a historian of American religion, and specializes in early evangelicalism. He is currently at work on a dissertation that interrogates the connection between space and the rise of evangelical revival in the eighteenth-century English-speaking world. His research, supported by the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Church Foundation, has been accepted for publication in journals like the The New England Quarterly and Jonathan Edwards Studies.
Prior to beginning his Ph.D. at The Florida State University, Mr. Adkins earned a B.A. in History from The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (2013), and an M.A. in American Religious History from The Florida State University (2017).
Camille Goldmon comes to UTC from Emory University, where she is working on her Ph.D. in History.
Ms. Goldmon specializes in twentieth-century United States history, particularly race and agriculture. Her research examines African American farmers in the Black Belt of Alabama between 1881 and 1940, and her dissertation focuses on those farmers and the institutions they relied upon to successfully participate in the agricultural industry as landowners. It proposes a re-evaluation of the agricultural programs at Tuskegee Institute as elements of a radical agrarian tradition through the argument that widespread black landownership had the potential to usher in radical economic, political, and social change.
Prior to beginning her Ph.D. at Emory University, Ms. Goldmon earned a B.A. (2014) and an M.A. (2017) in History from the University of Arkansas.
