Public Humanities Fellows Lectures, 2019-2020

Andrew Rimby                                       

Andrew Rimby is a Ph.D. Candidate in the English department at SBU. His dissertation, “The Pool of Narcissus: Transatlantic Homoerotic Attachments (1837-1901), argues that Walt Whitman, Oscar Wilde, and other 19th-century writers use ancient Greek allusions to express male homoerotic desire before the term “homosexuality” is invented. He is a 2019 Guiliano Global Fellow, a 2019-2020 Public Humanities Fellow, and a 2019 Stony Brook Graduate Fellow in the Arts, Humanities, and Lettered Social Sciences.

Zoom Lecture:  "Whitman’s Multitudes: From Interactive Module to Interactive Kiosk"
Tuesday, April 21, 2019 at 1:00pm

This talk explores the two phases of the “Whitman’s Multitudes” project. The first phase involved creating Whitman poetry lesson plans for middle and high school students with the English Education program. The second phase involved sifting through the students’ final projects to see what material could be used for the Whitman Birthplace’s interactive kiosks which will premiere in Summer 2020. This project emphasizes why multiple institutions (Stony Brook University, local middle and high schools, and the Whitman Birthplace) need to be involved when creating an interactive museum exhibit.

Lecture: " Combat Silence :  Narrating the Female Veteran Experience"
Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 1:00pm

Combat Silence is an initiative, in conjunction with the Herstory Writers Workshop of Long Island, that explores and gives voice to the female veteran experience through memoir. In the fall of 2019, students in EGL 320 “The Literature of War” embarked on an experiential learning process using the Herstory methodology to write about the experience of war side by side with female veterans. This talk will discuss the logistics of the workshop, its strengths and challenges, as well as plans for implementing this initiative into the English department in future semesters.
