Sarah Dimick Postdoctoral Fellow

Sarah Dimick is a Postdoctoral Fellow with a joint appointment in the Department of English and the Kaplan Institute for the Humanities. Her work is located at the intersection of climate science and global Anglophone literatures of the 20th and 21st centuries. Her current project, Climatic Arrhythmias: Global Warming, Literary Form, and Environmental Time, examines how literature both documents and responds to the disrupted temporal ecologies of the Anthropocene. Sarah’s articles are forthcoming in Mosaic and ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and the Environment, and her discussion of the challenges of animating climatic research for a public audience can be found in the environmental humanities journal Edge Effects. In her broader research and teaching, she engages a variety of ecocritical approaches, including environmental justice, postcolonial and feminist environmentalisms, animal studies, petroaesthetics, and theories of the environmental future.
