Theresa is a historian of the 19th and 20th centuries in the United States. Her scholarship investigates how Americans have used material and visual culture to define race, ethnicity, and gender, especially in the realm of food and drink.
As the curator of the American Brewing History Initiative at the Smithsonian Institution, Theresa collects objects, documents, and oral histories from the talented women and men who make the American brewing industry the most creative in the world.
The Initiative is the first national-scale, scholarly effort to collect the histories of home-brewing and craft beer in the 20th- and 21st-century United States.
