Casey P. Cater

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, I am currently a visiting lecturer in the Department of History at Georgia State University in Atlanta. My research focuses on the environmental, cultural, business, and political history of the electrification of the U.S. South from the late-nineteenth to the late-twentieth century. I develop these themes in my book, titled Regenerating Dixie: Electric Energy and the Modern South (University of Pittsburgh Press, forthcoming).

My next major research project will explore informal US empire and the history of global capitalism through an examination of Cuban electrification from the Spanish-American War to the Revolution.
