Kristin Girten is a cultural historian and theorist whose research focuses on intersections between literature, philosophy, and science. She seeks to recover hidden histories embedded within the British Enlightenment, giving special emphasis to how women and other marginalized communities contributed to such histories. She also devotes her work to understanding the enduring psychological, political, and ecological legacies of the Enlightenment era, particularly as they persist to the present day. Currently, she is completing a book whose working title is Touching Nature: Sublime Knowledge-Making and the Sensitive Witness in British Women's Literature and Philosophy of the Long Enlightenment and is co-editing a book entitled British Literature and Technology, 1600-1830. She has published on various eighteenth-century British authors and also specializes in the philosophies of Epicurus, John Locke, and Immanuel Kant.
