Kelly Cooper is from Richmond, Virginia. She graduated in May 2017 summa cum laude from Virginia Tech with a B.A. in History and minors in Art History, Medieval and Early Modern Studies, Classical Studies, and War and Society. Prior to her graduate career, Kelly has interned and worked at Agecroft Hall, the Department of Historic Resources, Colonial Williamsburg, and the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Her passion for research and understanding interdisciplinary and international approaches to the built heritage led her to study abroad in the UK and compose her honors thesis on “The Illumination of the York Minster and St. Patrick’s Cathedral: Two Preservation Approaches.” She had the great fortune to present her research at the ACC Meeting of the Minds in the spring of 2017. While in the Material Culture and Public Humanities program, Kelly plans to focus on the preservation and presentation of material culture and architectural heritage.
