New Hampshire Humanities extends a warm welcome to Catherine Winters, Ph.D. as Program Coordinator, supporting New Hampshire Humanities' slate of public programming.

Catherine received her Ph.D. in English at the University of Rhode Island (URI) where her dissertation focused on contemporary American literature and the place of the print book among other narrative options. Catherine also taught classes in literature and writing, organized the annual graduate student conference and a humanities symposium on student protest, and served as production editor for The Ocean State Review at URI. She is looking forward to using her skills in programming, evaluation, and digital public humanities to help connect people with ideas in New Hampshire.

Throughout her career, Catherine has held programming, communications and outreach, and public humanities positions, including interning for the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities (RICH). She has been lucky enough to present her research at dozens of conferences across the country and her work has been published in both academic journals and book collections. In addition, she produced the podcast “Careers in the Public Humanities” as part of the NEH-funded Next Generation Ph.D. at URI: Humanities at Large initiative, and created a series of videos for RICH exploring buildings on their West Side of Providence Rhode Tour. Catherine is fluent in French and spent a year teaching English in France.

Catherine is originally from New Jersey and has lived throughout New England since 2012, including in Rochester, NH.

In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, crafting, and, of course, reading. You can reach Catherine with a question, comment, or just to say hello, at cwinters@nhhumanities.org.
