Molly Nebiolo

PhD in History

Molly Nebiolo is a sixth-year doctoral candidate in history at Northeastern University (with a certificate in Digital Humanities) and the 2022-2023 Dissertation Fellow at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Her dissertation — “Constructing Health: Concepts of Well-Being in the Early Atlantic World” — sits at the intersection of early colonial urban history and the history of public health and medicine. This research also encompasses spatial history and notions of place in the early modern world. This project has been supported by the American Philosophical Society, the South Caroliniana Library, Haverford College Quaker & Special Collections, the Huntington Library, the John Carter Brown Library, the American Historical Association, and the Francis Wood Institute at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.

Molly’s Path

“The experiences I’ve had outside of my PhD program — and at international conferences — have influenced the way I look at the field of history and the type of work I can pursue with my degree. The faculty at Northeastern have assisted me to seek out these opportunities, and they have helped me to grow as an academic.”
