Mairin Odle

 

Mairin Odle is a doctoral candidate in the Department of History, in the field of Atlantic History. She is particularly interested in Native American history, histories of the body, and race and gender in early America. Her current research explains how cross-cultural encounters in early America could permanently physically alter individuals - by scalping, tattooing, or branding their bodies - and explores the creation and circulation of stories and images of such marked bodies. When in the archives she also enjoys finding accounts of unusual historical meals, such as a dinner of hominy, maple sugar, "and an Hedge-hog."
