PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace University alumna Abby Goode has been selected as a Dissertion Fellow in Women's Studies for 2015 by The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
Goode is currently a doctoral candidate at Rice University. She is a doctoral candidate in English. Her dissertation, Democratic Demographics: A Literary Genealogy of American Sustainability, reveals the racial, reproductive, and sexual contours of sustainability in nineteenth-century American literature.
The 2015 Fellows are writing on topics such as reproduction in the context of chronic disease, algorithmic detection of child abuse images and changing feminist visions at the UN from 1975 to 1995.
The Women’s Studies Fellowship is the only national program to support doctoral work on women’s and gendered issues. Each 2015 Newcombe Fellow will receive a $5,000 award to help cover expenses incurred while completing their dissertations.
