Julia M. Gossard received her Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015. Julia’s workshop paper developed out of her dissertation, “Reforming Children: The Pedagogy, Commerce, & Politics of Childhood in the Early Modern French World” which reconfigures the history of childhood in early modern France by considering children as actors as well as subjects. The recipient of several awards – including: The Graduate School’s Continuing Fellowship; The Society for French Historical Studies Marjorie M. and Lancelot L. Farrar Memorial Award for the best dissertation in progress at a North American university; The American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Robert R. Palmer Research Travel Award; and several departmental fellowships – Julia is now a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at IHS. Her article, “Colbert’s Children: Transimperial Subjects,” is currently under review for publication. In the fall, Julia will be starting as Assistant Professor of Eighteenth-Century History at Utah State University.
