Brookelnn A. Cooper


Third year history Ph.D. candidate at Queen's University. 

I am passionate about the movement of peoples & ideas in the early modern period, Dutch Golden Age material history; early modern book history more broadly, & cartography. For my Ph.D. dissertation I am exploring the uses of printed global depictions in the Dutch domestic sphere. I look at how these global images impacted Dutch identity formation during the seventeenth century and the growth of cosmopolitanism.
