Williams, Cynthia Schoolar

Cynthia Schoolar Williams is Assistant Professor in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Wentworth Institute of Technology.  Her 2014 book Hospitality and the Transatlantic Imagination, 1815-1835 explores how estrangement and belonging are given formal expression across a range of post-Napoleonic texts concerned with national identity formation. In more recent scholarly projects, Williams’s focus has shifted toward the eco-historical. She currently serves as director of the Center for Sustainability and the Environment for the Colleges of the Fenway, a consortium of five schools in Boston.
