    Katherine Reinhart

    Katherine Reinhart is the Consortium's 2019-2020 NEH Postdoctoral Fellow. She holds a Ph.D. in history of art from University of Cambridge. Her book project examines the epistemic and political functions of images in a pivotal early modern scientific institution – the Académie royale des sciences, the first scientific academy in France. It reveals how various types of visual material – from anatomical drawings to allegorical reliefs on coins – were an indispensible part of the Academy’s projects, as well as providing tangible evidence of the scientific ambitions of the French state.
