Anna Speyart is interested in the sociocultural history of early modern science. Her current work focuses on the history of ice and snow in early modern Europe. It traces the history of these ephemeral materials from harvest to use in scientific, medical, and consumer contexts. Anna has previously worked on games and play in erudite culture and on intellectual sociability in the sixteenth century. Before coming to Princeton, she received a BA in History from University College London and an MA in Cultural and Intellectual History from the Warburg Institute. For the Spring of 2023, she will join the Medici Archive Project in Florence as an Eva Schler Fellow.
