PhD Student Lorna Closeil Awarded Global Arts & Humanities Discovery Theme Graduate Team Fellowship
This fellowship brings together a cohort of graduate students whose projects intersect with one or more of the GAHDT Focus Areas – providing students with an opportunity to gain cross-disciplinary mentorship while being embedded in a collaborative ecology. The program aims to give graduate students in the arts and humanities an essential toolkit of skills as they prepare to enter a newly evolving job market – one that is highly dependent on networks, technology and a collaborative ethos.
The program has supported 32 interdisciplinary scholars thus far.
Lorna is a 2nd year PhD student and her research centers the world-making practices of Black feminist abolitionists within digital spaces through an afro-futurist lens.
