Workshop on Interdisciplinarity

Workshop with Andrea Henderson, Professor of English at UC Irvine
Thursday, September 12, 2019
11:00 AM-12:00 PM
3184 Angell Hall Map
Professor Henderson will meet with graduate students in order to discuss the special challenges of doing interdisciplinary work, from doing research outside one’s field to finding publication venues and audiences.

Professor Henderson's research centers in nineteenth-century British culture. She is particularly interested in exploring formal similarities between literary arts, visual arts, and sciences. Her most recent book, Algebraic Art: Mathematical Formalism and Victorian Culture (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2018), traces the influence of mathematical formalism on Victorian literature and visual art. Other recent articles include “The Physics and Poetry of Analogy” (Victorian Studies 56:3, Spring 2014) and “Symbolic Logic and the Logic of Symbolism” (Critical Inquiry 41:1, Autumn 2014).

Professor Henderson received her PhD in English from the University of Pennsylvania in 1991. She was an Associate Professor of English at the University of Michigan from 1997-2003. Her academic distinctions include the following: Guggenheim Fellow (2012-13), ACLS Fellow (2012-13), Michigan Humanities Award (1999), Bredvold Prize (1996), and Michigan Society of Fellows (1991-1994).

Co-sponsorship for this event is generously provided by the Michigan Society of Fellows, the Department of Comparative Literature, and the Institute for the Humanities.
