Catherine Devlin

Fulbright-University of Glasgow Postgraduate Award – MSc in Gender History

Catherine Devlin graduated summa cum laude from Boston University in May 2022 with a BA in history. Her passion for telling overlooked stories and drawing out historical personalities motivates her research, with her articles and conference presentations ranging from pre-Civil War Boston to modern day African female activists. In line with this interest, she worked as the lead researcher and associate producer on the 2020 Academy Award qualifying film Sky Blossom, which profiled the often forgotten group of child and millennial caregivers. Her honors undergraduate thesis used the story of a forgotten female peace activist to interrogate the disciplines of gender history and biography. She will continue this line of inquiry through her Fulbright program, where she will pursue an MSc in gender history at the University of Glasgow.
