Office: Thomas Hall 215
Pauline de Tholozany received her Ph.D. from Brown University with a
dissertation entitled "L’école de la maladresse: de J.J. Rousseau à J.J.
Grandville, XVIIIe-XIXe siècles." This dissertation traces a history of
clumsiness from the middle of the eighteenth century to the 1840s. Her
current research focuses on children’s books and civility manuals of the
nineteenth century, and, more generally, on the history of manners and
civility of the period.
