Emily Conroy-Krutz is a historian of nineteenth-century America, with a specialization in religion and foreign relations. She earned her PhD from Harvard University in 2012. Her book, Christian Imperialism: Converting the World in the Early American Republic, was published by Cornell University Press in 2015 as part of the U.S. and the World Series. It examines the global reach of the American foreign mission movement in the years between the 1790s and 1840s and analyzes the missionary response to imperialism. Her writing on foreign missionaries, American empire, transatlantic reform, and women’s history can be found in journals and edited volumes including the Journal of the Early Republic, Diplomatic History, and Early American Studies. Her current research is on 19th-century missionary connections to American foreign policy.
