Julia Grummitt is a third-year student in the History Department. She studies 19th-century North America with a specific interest in visual and material culture. Her work places landscape painting, cartographic practice and representations of Native American/First Nations peoples into dialogue with histories of territorial sovereignty, treaty making, and the continental expansion of the United States.
Before coming to Princeton, Julia received her M.A. in History from Trent University (Peterborough, Canada) where her thesis about Camilo José Vergara's repeat photography in post-industrial American cities was awarded the President's Medal in the Master of Arts. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts with Combined Honours in the History of Science & Technology and Canadian Studies from the University of King's College and Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada), where she received the University Medal in Canadian Studies.
