Starting at Leeds next month
I’m very excited to say that in less than a month I’ll be starting at the University of Leeds as Post-Doctoral Fellow in New Humanities, based in the School of English. Specifically, I’ll be working in the Environmental Humanities research group convened by Professor Graham Huggan and Dr. David Higgins. Though it will be sad to leave Landscape Surgery, I’m excited to work with the different (cross-disciplinary and cross-departmental) trajectories of research in environmental humanities going on at Leeds, not to mention the faculty’s work with arts engagement. Things may be a little quieter on the blog while I move up north and settle in, but I’ll be developing a number of new projects – including a conference on the modern political narratives of forests – which will be made evident here soon hopefully! I’ll also have a few updates on recent events – a couple of photos below – and the various miscellaneous activities going on post-Phd, including most recently my collaboration with Ula Chowaniec on Polish issues with gender and translation, which will be included on the eMigrating Landscapes website shortly (‘the eMigrating Landscapes Project aims at conceptualizing and presenting various cultural, literary and artistic perspectives on emigration, migration and displacement of border crossings’).
