Research Interests:
Liz Hines pursues an eclectic mix of interests. She is an inveterate South watcher and is currently monitoring changing national perceptions of Southern cultural characteristics. She also keeps an eye on modern hate crime perpetrators and victims and changing hate crimes statutes. She continues to study North Carolina's gold rush and the immigration of Cornish miners to the U.S. and other mining areas. She also collaborates with Eliza Steelwater in collecting and compiling data on American lynchings from the colonial period to the 20th century under the auspices of Project HAL (for Historic American Lynching). These data are being added to the list originally compiled by the NAACP and enhanced by Beck and Tolnay. A long-term project, the data base is being expanded to include time periods before 1882 and after 1930 for all states and all groups
