Corinne Field specilizes in U.S. gender and race, childhood and adulthood.

Corinne Field is Assistant Professor of Women, Gender & Sexuality at the University of Virginia.  She is the author of The Struggle for Equal Adulthood: Gender, Race, Age, and the Fight for Citizenship in Antebellum America (University of North Carolina Press, 2014) and co-editor with Nicholas Syrett of Age in America: Colonial Era to the Present (New York University Press, 2015).  Field is the co-founder of the History of Black Girlhood Network, an informal collaboration of scholars working to promote research into the historical experience of black girls, and she is a co-organizer of the Global History of Black Girlhood Conference to be held at the University of Virginia, March 17-18, 2017.

Her current research investigates the history of generational conflict within Anglo-American feminism from the 1870s to the 1930s, focusing in particular on the deep connections between age prejudice and racial prejudice in arguments for women's empowerment.  Field received her Ph.D. in American history from Columbia University and her B.A. from Stanford University.  She has been a fellow at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at the University of Virginia, the Huntington Library, and the Schlesinger Library.
