Evelyn M Strope

PhD Candidate in American History


I am a first-year PhD student in the American History subject group. I am supervised by Dr Bronwen Everill. I received a MPhil in American History from Cambridge and a BA in History with a NIAHD Certificate in Early American History, Material Culture, and Museum Studies from the College of William & Mary.

Research Interests

My doctoral project focuses on the intersections between politics and material culture in the early American republic, largely through the lens of nonconsumption. My MPhil dissertation, “‘Voting’ Consumers and the Continental Association, 1774-1775,” explored the First Continental Congress’ Association of 1774 as an early example of consumer-citizenship.
