Current Research: Modern European History, Women’s and Gender

Christina earned a B.A. in History and Philosophy from Georgia State University in 2009. Currently, she researches the mass visualization of cosmopolitanism in early twentieth-century Europe, with a particular focus on consumer culture in Germany and France. Her dissertation project takes up the intersection between formal politics and cosmopolitan performances in a pan-European context, analyzing how masquerades influenced the turbulence of early twentieth-century politics.
