“We are pleased to announce the appointment of four doctoral candidates who will be completing their dissertations on topics relevant to the JHI Annual Theme of Things that Matter at the Jackman Humanities Institute in 2015-2016 … Catherine’s dissertation explores the hidden influence of almanacs, barometers, smoke and sounds in the works of Charlotte Brontë, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, Gustave Flaubert, and Jules Verne, to examine the ways that rare, obsolete, or intrinsically evanescent objects create and represent the atmosphere in ways that still inform how we imagine our environment.” You can read the full JHI announcement here.
