Ann L Tucker

Ann L. Tucker is an author and historian, writing on the Civil War and US South through an international lens.


Dr. Tucker's areas of expertise include the Civil War era and US South, which she approaches through a transnational perspective.  She is interested in questions of southern identity and international influences; in particular, she wants to know how events in Europe helped shape southern identity in the Civil War era.  To answer these questions, her research studies the influence of European nationalist movements and the age of nationalist revolutions on the development of the Confederacy and southern nationalism.
