We’re delighted to announce our Environmental Humanities Visiting Fellows for 2016-17.
- In the autumn term Dr Sarah Daw of the University of Exeter will be in Edinburgh to work on “Unknowing Nature: The Development of Ecological Thinking in American Science and Literature from 1945,” a comparative study of the language of ecology in American popular science writing, journalism and literature written after 1945, and the function of “unknowability” in twenty-first century ecology.
- Dr Saskia Beudel, of the University of Sydney, will also join us over the autumn and winter. Dr Beudel’s project, “Science as Culture: Transgressing Disciplinary Boundaries 1850–2050,” will examine a history of interdisciplinary environmental research.
More details will follow soon!
