Lindsey Brandt Awarded Fulbright Fellowship

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Congratulations to Lindsey Brandt, who was awarded a Fulbright fellowship to pursue her dissertation research in Berlin. Her project at the intersection between scientific discourse and German-language literature of the 1830s and 1840s. In particular, she is interested in exploring how literature navigates questions of human-nature relations during the rise in the status of empirical science in Germany. Her research focuses primarily on literary texts by authors such as Droste-Hülshoff, Stifter, Büchner, and Mörike, but it also draws from theories of landscape aesthetics, contemporaneous scientific writings, and history of science scholarship.
