Kaari Newman

Graduate Scholar - Museum Professional - Content Creator

Aspiring Scholar & Archival Specialist

Hello! My name is Kaari Newman, and I'm currently a graduate instructor and Ph.D. student in the Department of English at the University of Delaware.

My scholarly interests include transatlantic women’s print and material culture of the long 19th century, with a particular focus on periodical studies. I received my M.A. in English from the University of St. Thomas and my B.A. in English Literature & Writing from Bethel University. If you really want to get me talking, ask me about Mary Shelley's short stories and fiction after Frankenstein.

Along with my Ph.D., I am concurrently obtaining certification in Museum Studies. I have completed coursework on museum management and archival processing, as well as fieldwork on historical British design. I also have extensive archival experience working with original manuscripts and 19th century texts. I regularly make archival work part of my scholarship and professional practice.

In my professional life before graduate school, I worked as a Senior Content Strategist for Thomson Reuters and in nonprofit marketing and development. My expertise includes:

  • Professional copywriting/editing and blogging

  • Content strategy and website design

  • Social media marketing and engagement

  • Search engine optimization (SEO)

  • Nonprofit development and grant writing

I continue to hone these skills as the Webmaster and Social Media Coordinator for the Research Society for Victorian Periodicals and as a freelance content creator. Whether you need basic copyediting or an overhaul of your website, I am ready to help you! Send me an email if you'd like help making your content stand out.
