congratulations, Dr Winick!!

Ever so many congratulations to Mimi Winick, successfully defending her terrific dissertation today!  "Studied Enchantment" is about the use of imagination, emotion and affect in scholarship in Britain between 1862-1931-ish - it's above all a recuperation of experimental scholarly writing by women during this period.  It was a bitter-sweet day for me - the last of my Rutgers students to defend (indeed, I was, technically, by now, the external reader, but I still think of Mimi as very much one of my own, right from recruitment) - but so wonderful to bow out on such a high note, and with a conversation in the defense itself between the five of us that was so very full of ideas.
