Bio
Kristin J. Jacobson grew up in rural Wisconsin and attended Carthage College in Kenosha, WI (B.A.) and the University of Colorado-Boulder (M.A.). After completing her Ph.D. at The Pennsylvania State University, she joined Stockton University’s faculty. Currently, Jacobson is a professor of American literature. She teaches courses in American literature, American Studies, and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. Incorporating feminist geography and literary analysis, her book Neodomestic American Fiction (Ohio State University Press, 2010) investigates late twentieth-century and early twenty-first-century manifestations of domestic fiction. She has also published articles edited collections as well as in Genre, Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature, Legacy, and C21. She is the lead editor of the essay collection, Liminality, Hybridity, and American Women’s Literature: Thresholds in Women’s Writing (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018). Her current book project defines and examines a new genre of travel and environmental literature: the American adrenaline narrative. Last spring she was a Fulbright scholar at Aristotle University in Greece.
