Congratulations to Graduate Student Bill Skinner on Receiving a John Carter Brown Library New Initiative Collaboration Grant to Fund Research this Summer for his Project "On + Off Site: Moving Tropical Environments Between Continents"

A project to explore the transfer of environments from the Caribbean to Europe following the period of Contact. The wealth of nature encountered by Europeans in the Americas required new ways to conceive of man’s place in the world and refigured his notion of Paradise, which was re-created in botanical gardens throughout Europe using materials from the Americas.

Brown, with its resources and connection with the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), provides an experience that “is above and beyond what photo historians typically get,” she says, pointing to her generous advisor, graduate-level photo seminars and her good student-colleagues.
