Katherine Marino
Assistant Professor, History, The Ohio State University
Clayman Institute Graduate Dissertation Fellow 2011-12

Katherine Marino received her Ph.D. in history from Stanford in 2013 and is now assistant professor at the Ohio State University. Her dissertation explores Pan-American feminism from the 1920s to the 1940s, revealing how a network of activists and organizations from throughout the Western Hemisphere worked in coordinated campaigns to move “women’s rights” beyond the domestic realm and into that of international law. Drawing on archival research in the United States, Uruguay, Cuba, and Brazil, her work looks closely at various perspectives on Pan-American feminism, as well as at the crucial organizational and conceptual roles it played in constructing the principles of international human rights.
