Headshot, KatherineIn 2015, I completed my bachelor’s degree in history, magna cum laude, with department honors. During my time as an undergraduate, I also completed minors in art history and studio art. Questions about power and capitalism brought me to the Hagley Graduate Program at the University of Delaware in the fall of 2016. When I’m not reading about culture, I enjoy knitting, photography, and playing guitar.

I am at work on two historical research projects: the first is a study of crepe paper at the turn of the twentieth century. The second examines the relationship between knitting, gender, and tradition during the interwar period in the United States.
