Elizabeth De Wolfe, Ph.D., professor of history, and Jennifer Tuttle, Ph.D., Dorothy M. Healy Professor of Literature and Health, both in the College of Arts and Sciences, were recently awarded a 2016 Pattison Residency.

The Pattison Artists and Writers Residency program provides a week-long residency in western Maine away from the distractions of daily life, where recipients may unplug and focus on creative endeavors.

De Wolfe and Tuttle proposed a collaboration of "writing alone together,” working on independent projects while also sharing with each other their texts in progress for mutual critique. During the residency period, each of them will work on book chapters, De Wolfe for The Congressman's Mistress and the Girl Spy, which explores women and ambition in an 1890s political scandal, and Tuttle for Unsettling California: "American Nervousness" and the Body Politic in Western Women's Writing, on gender, medical tourism and settler colonialism in turn-of-the-century California.
