New Environmental Humanities Fellows for 2024

New Environmental Humanities Fellows for 2024

We are delighted to announce that EEHN, in conjunction with the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities, will host three Environmental Humanities Fellows in 2024.

Between April and May we will welcome Dr Henry Ivry. Henry is a lecturer in 20th and 21st Century Literature in the School of Critical Studies at the University of Glasgow. His research sits at the nexus of Black studies, the environmental and infrastructural humanities, literary studies, and musicology. He is currently working on two projects, a monograph Incommensurate Repair: Insurgency, Infrastructure and the African American Imaginary, 1900 to Present and a collaborative work with community, academic, and artistic partners tentatively titled, “Sounding Off: Sonic Revolt, Fugitive Listening, Abolition Ecologies.”



In May and June, we will be joined by Professor Dolly Jørgensen. Dolly is Professor of History at University of Stavanger, Norway. She is co-editor-in-chief of the journal Environmental Humanities and co-directs The Greenhouse Center for Environmental Humanities at UiS. She has broad research interests at the junction of environmental and technological history, with publications spanning from medieval urban sanitation to the modern use of offshore oil structures as artificial reefs. Recently she has focused on cultural histories of animals, particularly the implications of extinction for cultural heritage and museum practices. Her book Recovering Lost Species in the Modern Age: Histories of Longing and Belonging was published by MIT Press in 2019 and The Medieval Pig is forthcoming with Boydell Press in 2024. She has published widely, including four co-edited volumes: New Natures: Joining Environmental History with Science and Technology Studies (2013); Northscapes: History, Technology & the Making of Northern Environments (2013); Visions of North in Premodern Europe (2018); and Silver Linings: Clouds in Art & Science (2020).

Finally, in June and July we will welcome Dr Sarah Dimick. Sarah is an Assistant Professor of English at Harvard University. Her research, based in Anglophone literatures of the 20th and 21st  centuries, focuses on literary portrayals of climate change and environmental justice. Her first book, Unseasonable: Climate Arrhythmias in Global Literatures, is forthcoming from Columbia University Press in 2024. Other writing appears or is forthcoming in Contemporary Literature, ISLE, Mosaic, and Post45: Contemporaries. She co-edits the University of Virginia Press’s Under the Sign of Nature series.
