Professor Bridgett Williams-Searle received her Ph. D. from the University of Iowa. She offers courses in the history of colonial North America; Gender, Race and Empire in British North America; American Indian history; Environmental history; the American Revolution; and the Early National Period.

While researching and writing her dissertation, Resolving the Revolution: Intimate Empires, Property Relations, and Law in the Early Republic, Professor Williams-Searle won many grants and fellowships, including the Woodrow Wilson Women's Studies Grant.
