Kathryn Desplanque is a fourth year PhD candidate. Her dissertation, entitled "Art, Commerce, and Caricature: Satirical Images of Artistic Life in Paris, 1750-1850," studies a set of over 600 drawn and printed satirical images that target art-world actors such as painters and sculptors, art critics and amateurs, museum and arts administrators and art institutions themselves.
More broadly, Kathryn is interested in print culture, sociability, and material and visual studies. Her dissertation incorporates digital humanities methodologies to store, organize, and interpolate her set of caricatures.
