Professor Janney received her Ph.D. in 2005 from the University of Virginia. Her first book, Burying the Dead but Not the Past: Ladies' Memorial Associations and the Lost Cause (2008) explores the role of white southern women as the creators and purveyors of Confederate tradition in the immediate post-Civil War South. Her second book will examine how the Civil War has been remembered between 1865 and the 1930s. She is particularly interested in ideas about reunion and reconciliation.
