This is the website of Abby Mullen. I am a research assistant professor at George Mason University. I mostly work on Tropy, a research tool created by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. I earned a PhD in history from Northeastern University in 2017. My dissertation, ” ‘Good Neighbourhood with All’: Conflict and Cooperation in the First Barbary War, 1801-1805,” looked at how the United States attempted to integrate into the Mediterranean community while fighting against Tripoli. I also work on the Viral Texts project, where I do a variety of writing about historical topics related to newspapers.
