Professor Anishanslin specializes in Early American and Atlantic World History, with a focus on eighteenth-century material culture. She received her PhD from the University of Delaware’s History of American Civilization program in 2009 and won the Sypherd Prize for Best Dissertation in the Humanities. She earned a BA in Comparative Literature and a BA in History with Honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was a Morehead-Cain Scholar. She previously taught at CUNY and at Columbia and was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of History at Johns Hopkins. Additional fellowships include grants from the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, The Huntington Library, the American Antiquarian Society, Center for the Humanities at the CUNY Graduate Center, The Library Company, Harvard Atlantic Seminar, the Massachusetts Historical Society, the New-York Historical Society, the Henry Luce Foundation/American Council of Learned Societies, and the Winterthur Museum.
Her current project, Under the King’s Nose: Ex-Pat Patriots during the American Revolution (The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, under contract) garnered her support as a Mount Vernon Georgian Papers Fellow at the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle, a Barra Sabbatical Fellow at the McNeil Center at the University of Pennsylvania, and a Davis Center Fellow in Princeton’s History Department. She is currently on her second year as a Mellon/ACLS Scholars & Society Fellow in partnership with the Museum of the American Revolution. Part of that fellowship is meant to further innovations in doctoral training and seeking to build bridge between academia and the public humanities, a cause Anishanslin is passionate about and strives to incorporate into her own career, as for example when she served as Material Culture Consultant for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s history exhibit, “Hamilton! The Exhibition,” which opened in 2019. In addition to teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses in history, art history, and material culture, she is an active public historian with professional and pedagogical experience in museum studies and historic preservation. She is the creator and co-host of the history podcast “Thing4Things” which premieres Fall 2023.
