Brief Bio: 

5th year English Literature PhD student at Temple University. My dissertation proposes that modernist fiction shares with vitalist philosophy and early ecology a conviction that a distinct life force organizes and sustains complex wholes, be they environments, things, or works of art, and that the outcome of this shared project is an aesthetics that has compelling ecological implications. The objective of my digital project is to map a network that will provide a thick context for thinking about how life scientists, philosophers, and writers responded to competing claims made by mechanistic strands of thought through books, essays, and lectures that advanced more holistic ideas about the natural world.
