Catriona Gold

Twitter handle: @cat__gold.

Catriona Gold is a PhD candidate at University College London. Her PhD research is concerned broadly with US travel government during the Cold War, and specifically with the role of the US Passport Office in shaping policy approaches to – and popular narratives about – the travel of Americans. This research has been primarily funded by the ESRC, with additional support via an AHRC-funded Fellowship at the Library of Congress.

Her overarching research interest is in genealogies of security, especially as they intersect with questions of mobility, disease and geographical imaginaries. Her previous research at the University of British Columbia examined the establishment and growth of US Africa Command, and its role in responding to the 2013-16 Ebola epidemic.

She is a podcast host at the New Books Network, and a member of Millennium Journal’s editorial board.
