The FBTEE team is proud to announce the appointment of Dr Katherine McDonough as Research Associate on our Australian Research Council’s Mapping Print, Charting Enlightenment (MPCE) project.
Katie McDonough is currently based at Bates College in Maine, but she did her doctoral work at Stanford (and much else besides) under the mentorship of Keith Michael Baker and Dan Edelstein.
She has thus worked with two of the most intellectually innovative Enlightenment/French revolutionists from two different generations, and has participated in some of the projects of the Mapping the Republic of Letters team.
Katie is already an accomplished digital humanist, and has a particular expertise in mapping and spatial history which grows out of her innovative doctoral work on infrastructure development and provincial society in late seventeenth- and eighteenth-century France. This is all experience that will be invaluable to the FBTEE project.
Katie will be working with us on the ‘Mapping the French novel‘ strand of the MPCE project.
FBTEE is delighted at Katie’s appointment from a strong field, and we look forward to welcoming them to Western Sydney. They should both be here in good time to participate in the George Rudé Seminar and Digitizing Enlightenment symposium in July.
