Professor Butler primarily teaches courses in American cultural and intellectual history. She received her doctorate at Yale University and taught at Reed College and James Madison College (at Michigan State University) before coming to Dartmouth in 2003.
Her research has explored the contours and complexities of 19th-century Anglo-American liberalism. Her first book, Critical Americans: Victorian Intellectuals and Transatlantic Liberal Reform, examines a group of liberal intellectuals who sought to remake public life in the second half of the nineteenth century.
Her current project (tentatively titled "The Political Education of Victorian Women: Gender and Citizenship in Nineteenth-Century Britain and America") focuses on the thought of a group of British and American suffragists, male and female, who held expansive views about the connections between education and democratic citizenship.
