Elizabeth Nielsen



I have just begun my fellowship year and am currently doing research abroad. I was awarded a prize from the Society for the History of Discoveries for my paper about voyaging, space, and environment in "‘This Dismall Country’: Voyaging and Space in the HMS Dolphin, 1766-1767" I also presented my work and participated in a summer school at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, Netherlands, on "Museum Objects as Evidence"
