Jennifer Marine

PhD Student

Jennifer Marine is a doctoral candidate in the History of Art program working under the direction of Professor Douglas Fordham. Her dissertation, Registering the Invisible in Fin de-Siècle Europe, examines late-nineteenth-century European technologies such as photography, X-rays, and sound recording devices to offer a broader understanding of representational practices at this moment in the history of modernism. Her research questions center around intersections of the history of science, technology, media studies, and gender. Over the course of her graduate career, she has worked in Digital Humanities, serving as a Praxis Fellow in the Scholars’ Lab in 2021-2022 and writing code for other DH projects. 

Before arriving at the University of Virginia, Jennifer received her M.A. with distinction from the Courtauld Institute of Art. Her dissertation engaged nineteenth-century ideas of physiological psychology with the materiality of George Frederic Watts’s portraits. She received her B.A from the University of Arizona in 2018 with a double major in Art History and French and a minor in Mathematics, graduating summa cum laude.
