Please join us in welcoming Helen J. Bullard, who will be joining C21 as a visiting scholar this coming spring semester!
Helen is a research-based storyteller and artist, whose practice bridges the arts, sciences, and social sciences to tell stories about environmental and industrial change over time. Incorporating multiple storytelling forms, recent work has comprised creative non-fiction and prose, live performance, audio and film story. Her current project, Borrowing Limulus: a horseshoe crab story is a book-length auto-ethnography focused on the complex medical, environmental and cultural histories of the horseshoe crab. Helen holds a special committee Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Arts and Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has been artist-in-residence at locations nationally and internationally, culminating in interactive installations, performances, screenings, workshops, and publications across five continents.
