My scholarship is mostly in areas of textual studies, American literature, digital humanities, and associated disciplines. I’m preparing an edition of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin and editing Walt’s mother Louisa Van Velsor Whitman’s letters for the Walt Whitman Archive.
I work on Jane Austen (books and films), Robin Hood, musical theatre in the eighteenth century, and scholarly journal editing. I teach British survey, satire, eighteenth-century lit, Austen, and copyediting and print design.
