About Elizabeth Barrett

Hello! I am going into my second year as a Phd Student at Lehigh University. In addition to my interests in Early Modern Atlantic World history and feminist theory, I am also a farmer, running a small organic produce farm outside Philadelphia. Always an avid reader, I have found my passions in historical research and writing. My current projects focus on European and American women's intersections and absences with Early Modern Proto-Feminist Enlightenment.

Liz Barrett is currently history PhDing at Lehigh University. CSA Farmer, mother of 3, and veteran of the USMC. Lives in suburban Philadelphia where she reads and writes a lot, and really likes old stuff. On Twitter: @lizcantlose.
