Jennifer Strtak is a PhD candidate in the Department of History and Program in Early Modern Studies. Her research engages the carriage as an investigative tool to explore how the development of transportation reconfigured built environments, daily life, and movement regulation in Paris between 1600-1800. Her research has been generously supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada-Conseil de recherches en sciences humaines du Canada as well as the Fox International Fellowship Program.
Prior to coming to Yale, Strtak obtained an Honours Bachelor of Arts from Trinity College, University of Toronto, and a Master of Philosophy from Lucy Cavendish College, University of Cambridge. In 2021 she was the co-recipient of the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning’s Teaching Innovation Project (TIP) grant for her contribution in the creation of a Certificate Program in Early Modern Studies for Yale College, which promotes the practical application of humanistic study to everyday life.
She looks forward to working with graduate students and helping them to achieve success in their written work, oral presentations, and teaching programs.
