About Rachel Small
I am a first-year PhD student in the Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies. I founded the UA History Department Journal this year and am one of the managing editors--our inaugural issue of the journal will be published in May 2017. I received my M.A. from San Francisco State University in 2016. My matser's thesis focused on female piety and its relation to concepts of the self in Reformation Germany. My current research continues to explore gender in early modern Europe. I also investigate the use of sound as a means to project power in the contested spaces that were shaped by the Protestant Reformation.
