Emily Bailinson

Emily Bailinson is a first year doctoral student studying 18th-century British history and a fellow in the British Studies cluster. As a cultural historian, Emily is interested in the impact of (in)visibility on the process of subjection in urban public space, modernity, gender, radicalism, and cosmopolitanism. She wrote her undergraduate thesis on the construction of Mary Wollstonecraft’s gendered subjectivity as a public woman following her death in childbirth in 1797.

Emily grew up in San Francisco and received her BA in history from Haverford College.
