My work concentrates on the literature and politics of the Romantic age in Great Britain. I'm author of several books on the subject, including Justice, Dissent, and the Sublime, and a forthcoming book on philosophies of progress from Thomson to Scott. I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in literary theory and the history of British Literature. I'm also interested in any issues pertaining to the past, present, and future of the humanities, including issues and problems of the "public" in the humanities, and the philosophy of "engagement." Eager to connect and collaborate on any of these subjects and more.
