Professor Angela Esterhammer elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada

September 22, 2015 News No Comments
“Angela Esterhammer is recognized internationally for interdisciplinary scholarship in the fields of literature, philosophy of language, print culture, and performance studies. Her research reveals the previously unacknowledged history and influence of improvised poetry in nineteenth-century Europe. Her publications on speech, action, and performativity in Romantic literature have opened up new approaches to British and European Romanticism around the world.” You can read more here and here. We also congratulate another newly elected FRSC, the distinguished University of Windsor book historian Professor Leslie Howsam, a close collaborator with BHPC over many years, whose “meticulous and ground-breaking scholarship, focused on nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Britain, uses archival and digital sources to recover the practices of authorship, publishing and reading of books and periodicals.”
