Newark, DE 19716<div class="ExternalClassA125778A1FD04D27971EF8ED6325E8E5"><p>Before embarking on my PhD in History with a Museum Studies certificate, I earned degrees in English, music performance, historical musicology, and library and information science. Although I’m a born-and-raised Iowan, my pursuit for knowledge has also led me to French Canada (Montréal) and now to the mid-Atlantic. During Summer 2018, I created a music-and-movement program for preschoolers for the Delaware Historical Society. I currently volunteer at a wildlife rescue and help organize a group writing program for PhD candidates to finish their dissertations.</p></div><div class="ExternalClassBCC7C5A109A2458795FA2E9C24EB1C07"><p>University of Iowa, M.A. Library & Information Science, 2017</p><p>McGill University, Ph.D. coursework Musicology, 2013–2014</p><p>University of Iowa, M.A. Musicology, 2013</p><p>University of Iowa, B.M.

Past publications and presentations have taken me from California to the British Library (and in between); my research topics have ranged from the history of cat litter to Girl Scout music, birdsongs for children, and music concerts in American libraries. In particular, I am interested in the racial constructions of animal rights/welfare ideologies and praxis, as well as the boundaries between humanity, animality, and technology. </p></div><div class="ExternalClass3FD99E2A8D554F7F82E8B5AE5168D0FC"><p>Dr. David Suisman</p></div><div class="ExternalClass7F1E4C64C2BC41E78E9E29B2F789F768"><p>Lawson, Katheryn. “Girl Scout Contrafacta and Symbolic Soldiering in the Great War.” <em>American Music </em>35, no. 3 (2017): 375–411. </p><p>Lawson, Katheryn. “Children’s Bird Songs, the Rhetoric of Conservation, and Politics of the Voice in the United States, 1900–1930.” In<em> Childhood and Pethood in Literature and Culture: New Perspectives in Childhood Studies and Animal Studies</em>, edited by Anna Feuerstein and Carmen Nolte-Odhiambo, 199–214.
