Mary Chapman specializes in American literature and transnational American Studies; in particular, she works on intersections between cultural forms (i.e. suffrage activism, print culture, parlor theatricals, parades), literary production, and politics in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century America. She is currently writing a microhistory of the Eaton family which included Edith Eaton (“Sui Sin Far”) and Winnifred Eaton (“Onoto Watanna”) and is the Director of the Winnifred Eaton Archive.
