Nicole Belolan

I am a Ph.D. student (ABD) in the History of American Civilization program in the Department of History at the University of Delaware, and I am
pursuing a career in public history and academia.

I study eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American cultural and social history. Some of my research interests include the intersection of material culture and changes in the body in everyday life and the history of disability, print culture, the history of collecting, and textiles and needlework.

This summer, I will be a Delaware Public Humanities Institute (DELPHI) Fellow. You can learn more about the program here.
