Jennifer Warburton

Graduate Student
Primary office:
Wescoe Hall
Room 3619


Jen studies the intersections between religion, politics, and the nascent media to reexamine the intellectual developments of the eighteenth century. Her dissertation focuses on two iterations of the Dissenters' Bill in 1772 and 1773 to question the unity of Dissenting culture on the eve of the American Revolution in order to better understand the political culture of a time otherwise known for colonial rebellion. 


Born and raised in Rhode Island, Jennifer received her B.A. from the University of Rhode Island in 2009 and an M.A. from Brandeis University in 2010. She considers herself a historian of British, religious, and intellectual history.
