Halee Robinson studies enslaved women's history in the U.S. South during the nineteenth-century. She is primarily interested in Black women's intellectual history during slavery and emancipation, especially their ideas of home and community. Halee received her BA in History and Political Science from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She wrote her undergraduate honors thesis, titled "For My Children's Sake: Enslaved Women and the Idea of Home in Nineteenth-Century Tennessee," which explores enslaved women's home as both physical spaces and ideas of freedom, womanhood, and motherhood. Halee earned Highest Honors and the Vanderbilt University Dewey Grantham Award for best undergraduate thesis in history for her work.
