Stacy Alaimo: recipient of the 2021 Presidential Fellows in Humanistic Studies

The award will help Alaimo complete Deep Blue Ecologies: Science, Aesthetics, and the Creatures of the Abyss, a book that investigates how aesthetic images of deep-sea life circulate through science, art, popular culture, and environmental advocacy. The book spans 100 years and explores how the images of deep-sea creatures have both threatened scientific authority and amplified scientific reception. Stacy Alaimo is a Professor of English and Core Faculty in ENVS. https://cas.uoregon.edu/2021/06/celebrating-excellence-in-the-arts-and-humanities-with-the-presidential-fellows-in-humanistic-studies-awards/
