Welcome! You have reached the homepage of Claire Love, a PhD student in the History at George Mason University. A 20th century Americanist, I focus mostly on identity creation and memory studies through the lens of culture, most specifically visual culture, with a special interest in gender and consumer culture. A more detailed list of my academic interests and pursuits can be found on the about Claire page.
At the moment the bulk of my page's content can be found in my blog, where I write regularly about various topics. Currently I am working on reading science fiction novels as historical texts. I also invite you to visit my page Civil Defense Cinema. The page presents a detailed analysis of three civil defense films, examining why they are more than just quirky reminders of a terrifying time in America's history. I created the page as part of a project for George Mason's History and New Media course.
I certainly hope you'll look around. For any further information, please contact me at clove1 at gmu dot edu.
