Katherine East

teaching fellow in Early Modern History
Newcastle University

Katie is currently a teaching fellow in Early Modern History at Newcastle University, having previously held a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship with the University. Her research focuses on early modern intellectual culture, particularly the aspects of that culture which contributed to the formation of radical political and religious ideas. Katie has a particular interest in how public debate helped shape early modern ideas, and the different intellectual tools used to manage these exchanges. These are the themes of her first monograph, The Radicalization of Cicero: John Toland and Strategic Editing in the Early Enlightenment (2017).
