Katherine Grenier specializes in British social and cultural history of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. She earned a B.A. from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, and an M.A and Ph.D. from the University of Virginia. Her current research examines the history of tourism in eighteenth and nineteenth-century Scotland, looking particularly at how tourist images of Scotland serve as a window through which to investigate middle-class culture.
Grenier has published articles in Nineteenth Century Studies and Victorians Institute Journal. She is the author of Tourism and Identity in Scotland, 1770-1914: Creating Caledonia (Ashgate, 2005). Her latest study of the cultural significations of nineteenth-century British tourism is "'Missions of Benevolence': Tourism and Charity on Nineteenth-Century Iona," in Benjamin Colbert, ed., Travel Writing and Tourism in Britain and Ireland (Palgrave, 2011).
Dr. Grenier has taught at The Citadel since 1992. In addition to the Western Civilization core curriculum survey, she teaches classes on English and Scottish history, including graduate-level courses on the Victorians.
