Miranda Marraccini

Miranda Marraccini, a graduate student in the Department of English, was selected as a 2018 Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellow in Women’s Studies. Marraccini’s dissertation, “Feminist Types: Reading the Victoria Press,” uses digital humanities methods and archival scholarship to develop a new understanding of nineteenth-century feminist print culture. This semester, Marraccini is co-teaching “Virtual Victorians” with Professor Meredith Martin through Princeton’s Collaborative Teaching Initiative.

According to the Woodrow Wilson Foundation’s press release, the Fellowship “supports the final year of dissertation writing for Ph.D. candidates in the humanities and social sciences whose work addresses women’s and gendered issues in interdisciplinary and original ways. Each Fellow is awarded $5,000 for expenses such as research-related travel, data work/collection, and supplies connected with completing their dissertations. In addition, their dissertation titles are publicized with leading scholarly publishers at the conclusion of the dissertation year.”
