James had conducted research through the Museum previously, and this fellowship afforded her the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary work drawing on her studies in both English and art history. During her fellowship, James worked for a time with a florist while simultaneously studying the flower industry and its complicated interactions with nature, technology, and commerce. At the same time, she was studying poetry that incorporated various kinds of research and information. James composed several new poems and planned to extend this work as part of her honors thesis in English.
