  • Jessica Conrad,


    Jessica Conrad, PhD candidate, studies nineteenth-century American print and material culture. Her dissertation examines the role print culture played in shaping, spreading, and sustaining consumer resistance movements, including abolitionist boycotts, temperance, and thrift culture. She is interested in the ways in which this literature imagines an inherent morality or immorality of material things. In addition to her studies at the University of Delaware, she leads a team of researchers and copy editors in the Colored Conventions Project. Jessica has been the recipient of multiple summer research fellowships; she has also held the Winterthur Research Assistantship. Her dissertation advisor is Dr. Martin Brueckner, Associate Director of the Center for Material Culture Studies.
