Casey Eilbert is a doctoral candidate in the Department of History. She specializes in the modern United States, with interests in work, political culture, and the history of ideas. Her dissertation explores the evolution of “bureaucracy” as a concept in modern U.S. history. Looking to both the private and public sectors, it considers how discourses about bureaucracy invoked questions about work, merit, and justice and were crucial in debates about the size and structure of government and corporations. Before coming to Princeton, Casey received her B.A. in Political & Social Thought from the University of Virginia.
