A Mellon Sawyer Seminar on "Deep Horizons: Making Visible an Unseen Spectrum of Ecological Casualties and Prospects," CU Boulder

At CU Boulder I was the postdoctoral fellow for a Mellon Sawyer Seminar, funded by a Comparative Study of Cultures grant, and organized by Erin Espelie, Brianne Cohen, Lori Peek, and Andrew Cowell. This seminar worked in partnership with the NEST Studio for the Arts, the Natural Hazards Center, the Center for Native American and Indigenous Studies, and the Art & Art History Department. You can read more about the seminar, and follow student work and online public lectures from leading environmentally focused scholars, here. Brianne, Erin, and I have now co-edited an open-access collection that grew from this seminar, entitled Deep Horizons: A Multisensory Archive of Ecological Affects and Prospects (Amherst College Press, 2023).

Humanities Without Walls

As a graduate laboratory participant, I took part in a 2018-2020 grant funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation for a collaborative research project entitled "Indigenous Art and Activism in Changing Climates: The Mississippi River Valley, Colonialism, & Environmental Change". The project is lead by Kelly Wisecup (Project Leader & PI, Northwestern), Vicente Diaz (Co-PI, Minnesota) and Christopher Pexa (Coordinator, Minnesota). For a full list of the participants, from five institutions, see this link, and for more information about the project, see this article. In 2022 we published short articles and interviews emerging from this project on our website Indigenous Mississippi.
