Welcome to Dr Kat Hill, new IASH EH Fellow!

Welcome to Dr Kat Hill, new IASH EH Fellow!

We’re delighted to welcome Dr Kat Hill, of Birkbeck College, University London, as our Environmental Humanities Fellow for 2023.

Her publications include the prize-winning book Baptism, Brotherhood and Belief (OUP 2015) and articles in numerous journals including Past and Present and German History. Recently she published a piece in Arcadia entitled ‘Golden Grains: Environmental Implications of Mennonite Migration to Kansas in the Late Nineteenth Century’ and is working on a forthcoming book called Simple Shelter on the history and contemporary culture of mountain bothies.

Simple Shelter: Bothies, Environmentalism and Communities of Place examines the significance of bothies and the communities they create, in conversation with environmental challenges our contemporary world faces. “Bothies are at the heart of a culture of hiking, storytelling, environmentalism, and wilderness, a culture sitting at intersecting tensions in the modern world,” she writes. “This project does not idealise bothy culture but seeks to ‘trouble’ the bothy as a way of asking important questions about entangled human and beyond-human worlds.”
