Dr. Anna Field, 2019-2020 Rhinehart Postdoctoral Fellow presented her research in a virtual “Lunch and Learn” lecture entitled, “Crime, Masculinity, and Intrigue in the Rhinehart Collection” on May 13, 2020. The recording of her lecture is now available: https://youtu.be/j9c0_O14H9k
Dr. Field joined Appalachian State University in September 2019 as the Rhinehart Postdoctoral Fellow in British History, where she used resources in the Special Collections Research Center to continue research and writing for a book project called Intimate Crime: Gender, Emotion, and Agency in Early Modern England and Wales. The research that she presented in May discussed aspects of her work that included resources from the Bill and Maureen Rhinehart Rare Book Collection on British History.
The postdoctoral fellowship is funded by the Roy Carroll professorship in History with in-kind assistance from the University Libraries, the History Department, and the Office of International Education and Development. It allows the fellow the opportunity to work on research and writing with access to the Rhinehart Rare Book Collection on British History in the Special Collections Research Center, and numerous other British history resources available through the University Libraries.
