BA (Hons.), MA, McMaster University
I received my PhD in English from the University of British Columbia, and specialize in nineteenth-century American literature and culture, gendered rhetoric and authorship, as well as poetry and poetics. My research and teaching are informed by feminist methodologies, archival research practices, and digital humanities. I’m interested especially in the editing and circulation of women’s poetry in nineteenth-century American periodicals, and I’ve been lately exploring women’s editorial work at U.S. daily newspapers in the first half of the nineteenth-century. My work on Emily Dickinson’s peculiar methods for circulating her poems in letters appears in the Oxford Handbook of Emily Dickinson (2022), and my work has also appeared in the Emily Dickinson Journal and American Periodicals.
