Grad Fellow Highlight! Jane Robbins Mize
What are you working on, Jane Robbins?
I'm currently a doctoral candidate in English at Penn, where I study American literature and print culture. My dissertation examines the intersections of colonialism, industrialism, and the cultural imagination of water in the early twentieth century United States. During my fellowship with PPEH, I'll also be publishing a pamphlet series that explores creative and collective reimaginings of the environment.
Do you have a current reading/ watching/ listening recommendations to share?
"Wild Blue Media: Thinking Through Seawater" by Melody Jue will challenge what you think you know about things like objectivity, communication, and even gravity.
Fun Fact: I also play the violin!
