Workshop on Interdisciplinarity
Workshop with Andrea Henderson, Professor of English at UC Irvine
Professor Henderson's research centers in nineteenth-century British culture. She is particularly interested in exploring formal similarities between literary arts, visual arts, and sciences. Her most recent book, Algebraic Art: Mathematical Formalism and Victorian Culture (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2018), traces the influence of mathematical formalism on Victorian literature and visual art. Other recent articles include “The Physics and Poetry of Analogy” (Victorian Studies 56:3, Spring 2014) and “Symbolic Logic and the Logic of Symbolism” (Critical Inquiry 41:1, Autumn 2014).
Professor Henderson received her PhD in English from the University of Pennsylvania in 1991. She was an Associate Professor of English at the University of Michigan from 1997-2003. Her academic distinctions include the following: Guggenheim Fellow (2012-13), ACLS Fellow (2012-13), Michigan Humanities Award (1999), Bredvold Prize (1996), and Michigan Society of Fellows (1991-1994).
