Natalie received an Emerson Humanities Collaboration Award to work on her project "Prostitutes as Propaganda: The Politicization of Sex Work in Stuart England, 1660-1714" with Professor Karin Breuer. Her research project focuses on depictions of prostitutes in political propaganda during the English Restoration. The goal of this project is to demonstrate that women, particularly those who were illiterate and could not leave records behind, are historically significant and not just a sidebar in a historical discourse that largely focuses on educated men. Natalie will continue this project as she studies abroad in London in the fall of 2017 with the intention to complete an honors thesis her senior year.
