"Embroidering the Landscape: An Ecocritical Approach to Early American Pastorally-Themed Needlework Pictures"

Associate Professor Andrea Pappas made a trip to Oxford in the UK over winter break to deliver a paper at the 46th Annual Conference of the British Society of Eighteenth-Century Studies. The conference is held every year at St. Hugh’s College, one of the many colleges which make up Oxford University. Her paper, “Embroidering the Landscape: An Ecocritical Approach to Early American Pastorally-Themed Needlework Pictures,” is related to her current project, a book about eighteenth-century embroidered landscapes. Professor Pappas received a special Dean’s Grant to help defray her travel expenses.
