About

I was educated at Williams College (BA), Emmanuel College, Cambridge (MA Cantab.), and Johns Hopkins University (PhD), and have taught in the English department at Rutgers University since 1996.  I have directed the Rutgers English Graduate Program, the Center for Cultural Analysis, and the School of Arts and Sciences Digital Humanities Initiative.  In 2018-19 I co-directed, with Andrew Goldstone, the Center for Cultural Analysis seminar in Classification.

In 2019-20 I will be Distinguished Fellow in the Humanities at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University.

I am currently the President of C19:  The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, serving a term that runs through the Spring 2020 conference in Coral Gables, FL.
