Research Interests

AnneMarie’s research involves the study of prostitution in Los Angeles from 1880 to 1940. She examines the process by which a handful of men began a systematic domination of the business and the ways in which the prostitution racket drew people of various racial and ethnic backgrounds together. Her article “The Harlot City?: Prostitution in Hollywood, 1920-1940” was recently published in the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies.
