Shifra Armon Awarded Fulbright Research Chair

Published: April 8th, 2017

Category: Culture, Featured, News

Fulbright Canada has named Professor Shifra Armon Research Chair of Society and Culture at the University of Alberta for  fall 2017. Her project is titled “Staging Curiosity: Skepticism, and Science on the Spanish Stage 1650-1750.”

“Staging Curiosity” joins ecofeminists and such cultural historians as Neil Kenny, David Castillo, and Barbara Benedict who trace continuities between Baroque curiosity and the rise of science. Instead of dismissing as anti-scientific the Baroque fascination with natural anomalies, with excess, or with the occult, Dr. Armon sees Baroque curiosity in the trans-Atlantic world as a bridge, a mediator, and an instrument for shaping new publics receptive to a regimen of science and “enlightenment.

It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
