Dinah Mayo-Bobee '07 PhD

At UMass, Dinah focused her attention on researching early national politics and a career in academia. Along with completing the teacher documentation program at the UMass Center for Teaching while a Ph.D. candidate, she created three new courses and taught in the History Department for three years after graduation. “I will always treasure my time at UMass and especially the opportunity to conduct research at the W.E.B. Dubois Library. History is my personal passion and working in a field that I love is a blessing.” She is currently an associate professor teaching undergraduate and graduate students at East Tennessee State University. Recent publications include the article “Understanding the Essex Junto: Fear, Propaganda, and Dissent in Early American Politics,” in New England Quarterly 88:4 (December 2015) and the book New England Federalists: Widening the Sectional Divide in Jeffersonian America (2017).
