Candice Harrison

Assistant Professor

Candice Harrison joined the department in Fall 2008 after completing her Ph.D. at Emory University. Her teaching interests span the eras of colonial and nineteenth century U.S. history, and include the subjects of economic and labor history, African American history, American popular culture, and comparative race and slavery in the Atlantic World.

Recently, Dr. Harrison received a Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship to support her current book manuscript entitled "Democratizing the Market: Place, Power and Politics in Early Philadelphia." The manuscript explores the social and political dynamics of exchange in the diverse street markets of early Philadelphia.
