My research is focused on the artist William Hodges and his works based on his time spent in the South Pacific with Captain Cook in the 1770s. When I began working on my senior thesis for Art History, it became clear that viewing his art works in person and looking at the files museums kept on his artworks would be absolutely essential. However, the majority of his work is held by the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, which would be difficult for me to visit. With the help of my mentor Janis Bergman Carton, I applied for an Engaged Learning grant. With the grant money, I was able to travel to the UK and visit places like the British Library and the National Maritime Museum, where I conducted research that would be crucial to my thesis.
