Alicia Peaker Receives Scholar-in-Residence Award


The English Department congratulates doctoral candidate Alicia Peaker, who has been awarded a Friends of the Smith College Libraries (FSCL) Scholar-in-Residence Award.  The FSCL award supports research visits of four to six weeks for scholars using the rich resources of the Sophia Smith Collection and Smith College Archives.   During her period in residence Alicia will draw on these archives for work on her dissertation, “‘The Different Way We Tried to Respond’: Women, Literature, and the Environment, 1890-1950.”  FSCL scholars are expected to give a work-in-progress colloquium to the Smith College community during their residency.
