Stephanie Bernhard is an assistant professor of English at Salisbury University in Maryland where she focuses on environmental humanities. She writes about literature, the environment, climate change, agriculture and the intersections of these disciplines. Stephanie received her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia in 2017 where she completed her dissertation titled “Humdrum Tasks: Agriculture, Environment, and Education in England and America, 1874-1999.”
Stephanie is currently working on a scholarly project called “Chronic Crisis,” which is about how we must adjust our sense of time to address climate change effectively and justly. She is also composing a creative manuscript about life on a decidedly non-idyllic contemporary small farm. Her journalism, essays, and reviews appear in Slate, Orion, The Los Angeles Review of Books and elsewhere.
