Kristofer Stinson

Graduate Research Assistant

U.S. History: Early American history; early modern history; political culture; history of religion

Kristofer Stinson received his BA in history from Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho where he was recognized for both his work in Early American history and in secondary education. He is currently a graduate student in the Department of History and Art History and focuses on the political and intellectual culture of Early America and the Atlantic World. 

Kristofer is currently working on a project with the Society of the Cincinnati that seeks to bolster the Society's holdings of both classical authors and works of ancient history published in the eighteenth-century that would have shaped the ideas and ideals of the Revolutionary generation. The final goal of this project is to expand the library’s collection for the use of scholars interested in the late eighteenth-century conception of antiquity.
