Wentworth Student Travel Fellowships Poster Session
English Department’s Wentworth Student Travel Fellowships Poster Session
Randall Library. 3-5 p.m., April 20, 2022.
Student Travel Fellowship Overview
The Wentworth Travel Fellowship, a gift of Mr. Charles F. Green III, was established in 2001 to enable a select number of students to travel to sites, in America or abroad, associated with literary authors and texts.
Each year, students work with faculty sponsors to submit applications detailing journeys inspired by and connected with a specific text, author, or movement in an effort to explore the relationship of artistic production to geographic space.
Please join us in Randall Library's Sherman Hayes Gallery to see the posters of the 2022 Wentworth Travel Fellows!
