St. John’s English PhD student Lisa Robinson has been awarded a travel and expenses grant to attend a research symposium hosted by the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC this coming May. The symposium, “Creating Nature: Premodern Climate and the Environmental Humanities,” will feature major figures in environmental humanities and ecological history as well as cognate disciplines including paleoclimatology, environmental law, anthropology, and the arts.

Lisa was awarded this grant so that she can bring her ongoing dissertation work on Shakespeare, ecology, and queer theory into the conversation at the Folger.

Please join me in congratulating Lisa on this award and her contributions to early modern ecocriticism!
