Jessica Reuther likes to get coffee with friends and doing almost anything outdoors.

Jessica Reuther is the new subject specialist for African-related research or instruction. Before taking the position at Emory, she taught world and American civilization for two years at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC.

A native of St. Louis, MO, Jessica completed a triple major in history, French and international studies from St. Louis University. She got her Master’s degree in history, with an emphasis on North Africa, from the University of Arizona. Jessica is working on her dissertation on changing girlhood norms in colonial Dahomey (now known as the modern day nation of Benin) in West Africa.

“I like to get coffee with friends and doing almost anything outdoors,” said Jessica. She loves camping and recently went skiing in Illinois.

“I was originally attracted to Emory many years ago because of their strength in modern African history and,” she added, “the chance to work with Dr. Kristin Mann.”
