Anne Krulikowski
received her Ph.D. in American History from the University of Delaware with a concentration in material culture and vernacular architecture. Her dissertation traced the evolution of the southwest Philadelphia landscape as it was transformed from farmland into residential neighborhoods, which were in turn ultimately demolished in the 1960s and 1970s. She has been Visiting Professor of American Studies at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. For the past eight years she has been aduncting in the History Departments at West Chester University and the University of Delaware where she teaches classes in the late 19th/early 20th century, The American City & Suburb, The American Home, and American Regional Culture and Landscapes. At Delaware, she also lectures in the Material Culture Studies Program. She has presented conference talks and published articles on Philadelphia housing, housing finance, and working class suburbs, as well as neighborhood grocery stores and the colonial revival in the MidAtlantic.
