Emily’s research focuses on the intersections between natural history, commercial and scientific exchange, and geological imperialism. Her dissertation examines the developing interest in gems and minerals across the long nineteenth century, looking particularly at how Americans used stones and geological theories to craft new perceptions of place, time, and belonging. This project has been generously supported through a Predoctoral Fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution Archives and a Dibner Fellowship in the History of Science at the Huntington Library. Emily is currently a Graduate Student Fellow at the Beinecke Library at Yale University.
