Benjamin is a doctoral candidate at l’Université de Versailles-Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines and Maître de langue at École Normale Supérieur de Lyon. His research is focused on the responsibilities modern Alaskan travel writing has toward environmentalism, specifically with regard to a “multitude of voices” theme: navigating techniques of inclusion in order to maximize environmental effectiveness amongst myriad agenda. Benjamin is interested in employing multiple disciplines of the humanities in analyzing Alaska’s frontier mindset, as well as its demographic relations, in order to aid in the process of clarification of what exactly environmental responsibility means to the region’s literature moving forward in the 21st century.
