Christine Bachman-Sanders


19th-Century United States



Christine holds a BA in Women's and Gender Studies from Middlebury College, an MA in Media, Culture and Communication from NYU, and a PhD in American Studies from the University of Minnesota. Her academic work is rooted in a feminist approach to historical and archival research, and relies substantially on genealogical records, particularly for research she conducted to identify the name of a long-anonymous cyclist and diarist located in the cycling archives in the UK. Christine views genealogical research as a way to build connections and empathy across communities, investigating how our families and histories interact.
