Kate Epstein

Assistant Professor of History, Rutgers University-Camden

Kate Epstein joined the History Department at Rutgers-Camden in Fall 2011, having received her PhD in history from Ohio State University in 2011, her MPhil in international relations from the University of Cambridge in 2005, and her BA summa cum laude with distinction in history from Yale University in 2004.  Her research focuses on the acquisition of advanced industrial weapons technology; she is particularly interested in the relationship between national security and intellectual property.  Her first book, Torpedo: Inventing the Military-Industrial Complex in the United States and Great Britain (Harvard University Press, 2014), examines these issues through the lens of torpedo development before World War I.  At Rutgers-Camden, she has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in military, diplomatic, and US history, and in the philosophy of history.
