As I come off sabbatical with a few book projects completed, I’m looking ahead to a busy fall.
- I’ll be speaking on a roundtable about teaching Eliot’s The Waste Land in the time of / response to #MeToo at the annual gathering devoted to that author at Emory University from September 21–23.
- This year’s Modernist Studies Association conference in Columbus, OH takes Graphic Modernisms as its theme, and I’ll be co-leading a seminar with Melissa Dinsman (“Seeing Modernist Reading”) and giving a paper on Alison Bechdel’s Are You My Mother? and its (non)representation of Woolf’s “reading through our mothers.”
- Along with our stellar Creative Writing faculty and students, I’ll be heading to Susquehanna University for the annual meeting of the Forum for Undergraduate Student Editors (FUSE)—we’ve got some very cool curricular developments in the works and I’m excited to learn more about what’s happening at Susquehanna and with undergraduate writing, editing, and publishing around the country.
- And: big news…we are looking to hire a tenure-track Assistant Professor of English specializing in the long 18th century / Romanticism. We are committed to an inclusive search and the cultivation of a broad and diverse pool. Find out more about the position here. Widener is a truly terrific place to work, so please get in touch if you’d like to know more.
