Dr. Kreider is a Colorado native and CSU Department of History alum who went on to earn her Ph.D. in Modern European History at the University of Arizona. Specializing in British History, her research focuses on the role of women and gender in the development of both cultural and political Welsh nationalism in the 19th and 20th centuries.  This has allowed her to expand her interests into the dynamics of the British Empire and in teaching the history of Ireland.  She also earned her M.A. in Teaching at Washington University in St. Louis, which has encouraged her to expand her teaching repertoire and publishing into pedagogy, including the study and use of television and film in courses.
