Mikhaila Redovian is currently a Ph.D. student in the English department at UC Davis. Trained in both English and Geology as an undergraduate, these two different approaches to interpreting landscapes and telling stories continues to inflect her graduate work. Mikhaila’s current projects focus on the politics of knowledge production in Enlightenment England and brings together corporate history, exploration narratives, and both scientific and literary imaginings of place. Her research interests include Early Modern poetics, early depictions of the environment, and food history. Previous work has focused on Milton’s Paradise Lost and the role that questions and questioning take in the text. Mikhaila has written for the Oecologies blog, and has presented work at the Northeast Modern Language Association 2020 meeting, among others.
