Kathryn Wolford, History
Kathryn Wolford completed a B.A. in early modern history at the American University of Paris in 2004. Currently a doctoral candidate in History at CGU, she is working on a dissertation which examines popular debate over recurrent plague outbreaks in early modern England under the direction of Professor Lori Anne Ferrell. Debate over the best means of halting the spread of plague provides an incredibly stable, and rarely used, lens into social anxieties and conflicts during an age of rapid change in science, religion and government. As a recipient of the Huntington Library's Linacre College, Oxford grant, Kathryn will spend this summer researching occult medical tracts at the Bodleian Library at Oxford University.
