J.D. Schnepf, PhD
Schnepf is currently at work on a book project that traces the relationship between militarized drones that maintain US imperialism overseas and cultural representations of femininity and domesticity at home. A special issue titled "Gender and Surveillance," edited with Dr Molly Geidel, is forthcoming for Review of International American Studies (RIAS) (Spring 2022). In 2019, she was awarded two competitive prizes from international and national academic associations: the Emory Elliott Prize by the International American Studies Association (IASA) at the IX IASA World Congress and the Amy J. Elias Founder's Award by the Association for the Study of Arts of the Present (ASAP). Her research has been supported by institutions including Brown University, Harvard University, Princeton University, The English Institute, the American Association of Geographers, the Huntington Library, and the Christopher Isherwood Foundation.
Schnepf offers courses and supervises graduate work in the areas of twentieth- and twenty-first-century American studies, literature, gender and women’s studies, STS, and surveillance studies. Recent courses include "Domestic Cultures of US Imperialism"; “Computers and US Culture”; “Domestic Disturbances”; “Reading Minds”; and “Imagining Media.”
Before joining the Groningen faculty, Schnepf was the 2019-2020 Postdoctoral Associate for the Project on Gender in the Global Community (GGC) Seminar "Gender and Security" at Princeton University and a Lecturer in the Princeton Writing Program. She also mentored first-generation, low-income students as a SIFP Faculty Fellow. Prior to her Princeton lectureship, she served as a Lecturer in the History & Literature concentration at Harvard University where she also co-directed the Novel Theory Across the Disciplines seminar at the Mahindra Humanities Center. She earned her Ph.D. in English from Brown University.
