First up is Jamie Hinrichs, a first-year PhD working in Environmental history with Dr John Clark. She will give a paper titled, “John Muir: Peripatetic, Preservationist & Provoker of a PhD Pilgrimage” that explores how her love of the outdoors and one of it’s biggest proponents brought her to St Andrews as a PhD student.
Following Jamie will be Kimberly Sherman, third-year PhD in Scottish and Early American history with Professor Steve Murdoch and Dr Emma Hart. Kimberly will share her experiences working with microhistory, biography, and reading correspondence in a light-hearted look at the role of the historian in “Reading dead peoples’ mail: the historian and her subject”.
Join us from 5.15pm in St Katherine’s Lodge Room 1.10 for discussion. Refreshments will be provided, followed by a trip to the Brew Co. to continue discussion. **Please be aware that the doors to St Katherine’s are often locked at 5:00pm. Please plan accordingly.**
