Diana Williams writes on the relationship of law (particularly civil and family law) and culture in North America; her work focuses on race, gender, and sexuality. She is completing a book that links the history of interracial marriage to changing definitions of U.S. citizenship in the nineteenth century.
Her next project investigates the administration of Civil War widows' pensions as an epilogue to Reconstruction.
