Claire Conklin Sabel has received a Student Grant Award for her project "The Fossils We Live Amongst" from the Sachs Program for Arts Innovation at Penn. Claire will collaborate with artist and illustrator Alix Pentecost-Farren to produce a set of illustrations and a digital animation illustrating women’s participation in scientific inquiry in eighteenth century Britain. This project is based on historical sources from Claire’s doctoral research into the role of mineral commodities in the history of the earth and environmental sciences.

The Sachs Program supports interdisciplinary arts and humanities projects from across the university. Read more about this year's student projects here:
