Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Michigan State University
At the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) a plethora of by-product radionuclides will be created that are of immense societal value for a number of disciplines, viz. nuclear medicine, plant biology, material science, astrophysics and stockpile stewardship science. It is an ambitious endeavor to collect these rare radionuclides at sub-nanomolar levels from the vast amount of cooling water, radiochemically purify them, and finally transfer them into a chemical form that is required for the specific applications. So far, the feasibility of ‘isotope harvesting’ was already probed at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL). The next step will involve a translation towards the conditions at FRIB, where challenges like considerably increased levels of radioactivity, diluted in a greatly larger water volume will be met.

Associate Professor and Reader of French, University of Warwick
In October 2013 I began an AHRC-funded project on French Theatre of the Napoleonic Era. This project involves a team of doctoral and postdoctoral researchers working on linking close textual readings to larger cultural, social and political issues. I am currently putting the finishing touches to a critical edition of Pixerécourt's La Forteresse du Danube (1805) for the playwright's complete works being published by Garnier.
In 2012 I published a monograph on 'non-political' fiction of the 1790s as a response to the trauma of the Revolution (Narrative Responses to the trauma of the French Revolution (Oxford, Legenda, 2012)). The research has shown how the apparent continuity of Ancien Régime tropes, settings and characters is in fact an indication of writers' traumatised response to the Revolution.
My first book on The Moral Tale in France and Germany 1750-1789, examining the development of short fiction in the two countries in the years leading up to the French Revolution, was published by the Voltaire Foundation as SVEC 2002:7. Much of my work is centred on questions of literary history and the thorny problem of literary influence.

Assistant Professor of Art History, Binghamton University, State University of New York
Katherine Reinhart specializes in the history of art and visual culture of the early modern period. Her research examines intersections between art and science, with a particular focus on the creation, use, and circulation of images in the formation of knowledge.
She is currently completing her first book, Images for the King: Art, Science, and Power in Louis XIV’s France, which examines the epistemic and political functions of images in the Académie royale des sciences—one of the first and most eminent scientific societies in the seventeenth century. It interrogates how various images and objects were created, selected, and deployed in the service of knowledge production and as a means of broadcasting monarchical power. In doing so, this book accounts for the pictorial practices of the natural philosophers assembled in Paris by Louis XIV and the artists with whom they collaborated and situates them in the larger context of the Sun King’s absolutist government and image-making program. Based on previously unstudied archival materials, Images for the King integrates the histories of art and science to explore graphic skill, visual and scientific practice, patronage structures, knowledge production, and the politics of images. Ultimately, it reveals how visual materials—from anatomical drawings to allegorical reliefs on coins—were indispensable to the Academy’s projects, providing tangible evidence of just how central scientific ambitions were to the evolving French state.
Reinhart is currently working on three larger research projects: the first explores the materiality and material culture of early modern science and will culminate in an article and guest-edited special issue of the journal Centaurus. The second, a collaboration with Matthijs Jonker, takes an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to the visual culture of early modern scientific societies through an international symposium and edited volume. Finally, the third project investigates practices of image copying and circulation as they created and transmitted scientific and artistic ideas across early modern Europe and its colonial networks.
Professor Reinhart’s research has been supported by the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Camargo Foundation, the Consortium for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine in Philadelphia, the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and she is an ongoing member of the “Visualizing Science in Media Revolutions” Research Group at the Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max Planck Institute for Art History in Rome.

Professor of Anthropology, Clemson University
My current research focuses on estimating the time of death or postmortem interval in medicolegal death investigations. Research funded by the National Institute of Justice utilizes an application, geoFOR to provide predictions of the postmortem interval. I also continue to examine changes that have occurred in the craniofacial morphology of modern populations during the past 200 years. The past two centuries have been a unique experiment on the effects of extreme environmental change on human populations. I am exploring both the proximate and ultimate causes underlying the effects of changes in mortality patterns, migration rates, and socio-economic parameters in a modern population and their outcomes on the phenotype. I have also been working as a forensic anthropology consultant for various counties in the Upstate of South Carolina. When skeletal remains are discovered, I assist law enforcement officers with the identification of the remains.

Associate Professor of History, Northwestern University
Kathleen Belew is a historian, author, and teacher. She specializes in the history of the present. She spent ten years researching and writing her first book, Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America (Harvard, 2018, paperback 2019). In it, she explores how white power activists created a social movement through a common story about betrayal by the government, war, and its weapons, uniforms, and technologies. By uniting Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazi, skinhead, and other groups, the movement mobilized and carried out escalating acts of violence that reached a crescendo in the 1995 bombing of Oklahoma City. This movement was never adequately confronted, and remains a threat to American democracy. Her next book, Home at the End of the World, illuminates our era of apocalypse through a history focused on her native Colorado where, in the 1990s, high-profile kidnappings and murders, right-wing religious ideology, and a mass shooting exposed rents in America’s social fabric, and dramatically changed our relationship with place, violence, and politics (Random House).
Belew has spoken about Bring the War Home in a wide variety of places, including The Rachel Maddow Show, The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell, AC 360 with Anderson Cooper, Frontline, Fresh Air, and All Things Considered. Her work has featured prominently in documentaries such as Homegrown Hate: The War Among Us (ABC) and Documenting Hate: New American Nazis (Frontline). Belew is an Associate Professor of History at Northwestern University. She earned tenure at the University of Chicago in 2021, where she spent seven years. Her research has received the support of the Chauncey and Marion Deering McCormick Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Jacob K. Javits Foundation. Belew earned her BA in the Comparative History of Ideas from the University of Washington, where she was named Dean’s Medalist in the Humanities. She earned a doctorate in American Studies from Yale University.
Belew has held postdoctoral fellowships from the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University (2019-20), Northwestern University, and Rutgers University. Her award-winning teaching centers on the broad themes of history of the present, conservatism, race, gender, violence, identity, and the meaning of war. Belew is co-editor of and contributor to A Field Guide to White Supremacy, and has contributed essays to Myth America and The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: A First Historical Assessment.
