Katrina Ponti
Position
Visiting Fulbright Student

Katrina Ponti is a visiting Fulbright Student at CFGS, and a Ph.D. Candidate in History at the University of Rochester. She is completing her dissertation research on American- First Nations contact in the 1790s. Katrina’s research explores how American public diplomats created strategies to help shape a global environment favourable to U.S. interests and how they created a previously unseen type of democratic diplomacy at the beginning of the long nineteenth century (1783-1818). 

Katrina’s interests include the role of citizen diplomacy in the relationship between democracy and peace, the History of Espionage and the Atlantic world, its archaeological wealth and its political connections.
