Dylan is a first-year literary studies student interested in the environmental humanities. Much of his research to date takes a look at the relationship between colonialism and plants and uses climate fiction as a vehicle for reimagining human/land relations. At Madison Dylan plans to cultivate an interdisciplinary and public-facing approach to scholarship. When not in school, you can find him meandering through the Arboretum, grabbing a drink with friends, or attempting to bake an Instagrammable loaf of bread.
