Savannah Downing, a Rhetorical Studies PhD Candidate, received a Graduate Research Award of $1000 from the Willson Center for her dissertation research on the memory of the Radium Girls. She plans to visit Ottawa, Illinois, as a kind of "toxic tour" to understand how the memory of the Radium Girls manifests through the rhetoricity of radium and radiation, using feminist new materialist frameworks to explore the inseparability of capitalist labor practices and environmental toxicity. Congratulations, Savannah!
