2020 Graduate Fellow

I'm a rising fifth-year in history writing on why and how people in the fourteenth century chose to adopt mechanical clocks, a novel technology. I am using this project, "The Proliferation and Assimilation of Mechanical Clocks in Fourteenth-Century Europe," to question why and how societies more broadly adopt new technologies. My CDH project is to model, 3d print, and assemble replicas of medieval clockworks.
