Bio

Kathryn graduated her Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in 2020 with majors in History and German Studies, having written her thesis about conceptions of children in seventeenth-century witch trials and possession cases. She drinks too much coffee, loves talking about grammar, and really enjoys learning about new topics as she researches and writes articles. In her spare time, Kathryn crochets, cross-stitches, and plays boardgames with her friends. She is currently undertaking a master’s degree in Publishing and Communications at the University of Melbourne.
