GREG A. BEAMAN
I am a historian of 18th and 19th century New Orleans and the 17th century Netherlands. My research interests include: race, gender, and power; the built environment and the history of architecture; twentieth-century American music; and local and national identities. In 2010, I started Our House Stories, a historical research firm that uncovered hundreds of stories of ordinary New Orleanians who built not only homes but lives, families, and careers in the Crescent City. I am the Director of Research for the Claiborne Avenue History Project. I'm a doctoral student in Transregional History in the History Department at Georgetown University.
I earned a Bachelor of Musical Arts from DePauw University in 2004, a Master of Arts in History from Louisiana State University in 2007, and a Master of Music Performance from Loyola University-New Orleans in 2012.
