Jennifer Merriman

Ph.D. Student

advisor: Nicholas Popper
Current Research: Cultural/Intellectual, Medieval and Early Modern Europe, Germany

Jenny received her B.A. in German from Sewanee: The University of the South in 2017, graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. After graduation she moved to Germany on a Fulbright grant to teach English, where she visited as many obscure places as she could in an exercise of complete immersion.

Her research focuses on early modernity in Western Europe, with a focus on German-speaking regions. In particular, she is interested in cultural and intellectual history and the development of group mythologies from the Medieval era onwards. Jenny currently works at Swem Library Special Collections.
