Communications Coordinator


Katie Hodges-Kluck completed her PhD in history at UT in 2015 under the supervision of Dr. Jay Rubenstein.

Dr. Hodges-Kluck's research interests include: The Angevin Empire, medieval court culture, identity formation, memory studies, mythology and legend, chivalry and tournaments, Muslim-Christian relations, the Crusades, travel literature, intellectual movements, borderland studies, and travel narratives. Her dissertation, "The Matter of Jerusalem: The Holy Land in Angevin Court Culture and Identity, c. 1154-1216," examined how twelfth-century ideas about Jerusalem influenced the English identity of the Angevin court. She has also published on this topic. Her essay on the 12th century memory of Helena and Constantine received the Haskin Society's Denis Bethell Prize.

During her doctoral studies, Dr. Hodges-Kluck was the recipient of Marco's two major fellowships, the Anne Marie Van Hook Memorial Travel Fellowship and the Haslam Dissertation Fellowship, as well as the Humanities Center's Graduate Fellowship. Dr. Hodges-Kluck was a postdoctoral lecturer in the UT History Department during the 2015-16 academic year, and the Coordinator for Undergraduate Outreach at the UT Humanities Center. She is now the Program Coordinator and Research Associate for the Marco Institute.
