Dr. Adelman teaches American history, including classes on the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, women’s history, and family history. She is currently working on a book manuscript that uses a study of nineteenth-century orphan asylums to uncover family survival strategies of the working poor and study the ways perceptions of children and childhood were contingent on the class, racial, ethnic, and gender identities of the children in question. Dr. Adelman’s publications include an article in The Journal of Women’s History entitled “Empowerment and Submission: The Political Culture of Catholic Women’s Religious Communities in Nineteenth-Century America”, which won the American Society of Church History's Jane Dempsey Douglass Prize for 2012, as well as a chapter in Separate and Unequal: Historical Perspectives on American Education (Lexington Books, 2009). She has received research fellowships from the Gilder-Lehrman Institute for American History, the New-York Historical Society, and the Maryland Historical Society and has presented her work at various academic and policy conferences.
