Introductions - New Editor for H-Emotions

Hi all! 

I wanted to take a brief moment to introduce myself to the H-Emotions community. My name is Mandy Cooper, and I'll be joining Bradley Irish as one of the editors for H-Emotions. I'm a lecturer of women's and gender history in the history department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. My current project, tentatively titled A Republic of Credit: Building a National Family from Revolution to Reconstruction, explores the relationship between emotional family bonds, commerce, and governance in the United States from the Revolution to Reconstruction. I have an article that was just published in the Journal of the Early Republic, and I'm also co-editing a volume with Andrew Popp entitled The Business of Emotions in Modern History, which is under contract with Bloomsbury Academic for the History of Emotions series.

I'm looking forward to getting started with H-Emotions! Look for some new initiatives, and more posts coming soon as we get H-Emotions back up and running.
