Anneke Schwob

I am a doctoral candidate studying American literature and science. Although I spend most of my time in archives (and coffeeshops), my research explores the narrative and scientific production of wilderness. My dissertation, In Situ: Scientific Space and the American Literary Imagination, focuses on the interaction between American science, exploration, and values at the turn of the 20th century. I hopes that one day I, too, will be able to go outside again.
