About Me

Stephanie Gamble is a librarian at the Johns Hopkins University serving the departments of History, History of Science and Technology, and Anthropology as well as the programs for Africana Studies and Medicine, Science and the Humanities.

She received her PhD from Johns Hopkins in 2014 with a dissertation entitled Capital Negotiations: Native Diplomats in the American Capital, 1789-1837, which she is currently revising for publication.

Her work focuses on Native American diplomatic encounters in colonial and early national America.

As a librarian, she is also interested in the teaching of historical research in the undergraduate classroom and supporting graduate researchers throughout the research cycle.
