Environmental Humanities Fellowships at Edinburgh

The Edinburgh Environmental Humanities Network are pleased to announce that the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities (IASH) has awarded two Environmental Humanities fellows for 2015-16.

Between September and October 2015 Dr Derek Gladwin of the University of British Columbia will take up a fellowship in Edinburgh, to work on a project called ‘Spatial Justice in Literary and Visual Cultures of Ireland and the UK.’

Dr Samantha Walton of Bath Spa University will be with us from June to August 2016. Her project is ‘Ecology and Mind in the work of Scottish Literary Renaissance writers Lewis Grassic Gibbon and Nan Shepherd.’

Both are excellent projects, and in addition to developing their research each fellow will be invited to contribute to the activity of the network. Watch this space for details of future events.
