She most recently authored Age in America: Colonial Era to the Present (New York University Press, 2015) and The Struggle for Equal Adulthood: Gender, Race, Age, and the Fight for Citizenship in Antebellum America (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2014). Her research focuses on the intersection of gender, race, and age in the nineteenth-century United States.
Field received her PhD in American history from Columbia University in 2008 and her BA from Stanford University in 1997.

Her next book, tentatively titled Minors to Men: Maturation, Gender, and Race in the Early American Republic, will investigate the political significance of manhood as a stage of life.
