Introducing the OSI 2022 Faculty: Nora Slonimsky

Posted at 10:28 am under Uncategorized

We are happy to introduce Nora Slonimsky as a member of the OSI 2022 faculty!! She is the Gardiner Assistant Professor of History at Iona College, where she serves as Director of the Institute for Thomas Paine Studies.

Nora studies the history of communication and book history, political economy, and legal culture, with a particular focus on intellectual property, while her work at the Institute for Thomas Paine Studies is concerned largely with public and digital history. Her research offers new and exciting perspectives central to the interdisciplinary format of the Osnabrück Summer Institute. She will convene a workshop with Cristina S. Martinez on the intersection of intellectual property, copyright and cultural production.

Nora’s in-progress book, The Engine of Free Expression: Copyrighting the State in Early America is forthcoming with the University of Pennsylvania Press and won the Society for the History of the Early American Republic (SHEAR) prize for best manuscript. This project, along with other research in the digital humanities, is supported by the Huntington Library, the Library Company of Philadelphia, the New-York Historical Society, and the America Antiquarian Society, among others. She is also co-editing an open-access volume with Cornell University Press, “American Revolutions in the Digital Age.” Nora serves as the Social Media Editor for the Journal of the Early Republic and the reviews editor for SHARP News.
