Sarah Piatt at 180 and Palace - Burner at 15: the View from 2016
2016 will mark the 180th anniversary of Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt's birth and the 15th anniversary of the groundbreaking publication of Paula Bernat Bennett's Palace - Burner, the first modern anthology of the poet's work. Since her mid-nineteenth-century arrival on America's literary scene, Sarah Piatt has been recognized for her "womanly" subject matter and ethos, and the "feminine" quality of her poetry has been aptly characterized by nineteenth-century British author Alice Meynell "not as a grace, but as a force."

"Do you see the slightest evidence anywhere in the universe that creation came to an end with the birth of man? Do you see the slightest evidence anywhere out there that man was the climax toward which creation had been straining from the beginning? ...Very far from it." ― Daniel Quinn, Ishmael
What is meant when we consider something to be in process?
Many teachers of Edgar Allan Poe's writings spend time dispelling myths about the writer, and this process involves helping students understand the antebellum world in which Poe lived and worked. At the upcoming ALA Conference in San Francisco, the Poe Studies Association will sponsor a panel about contextualizing Poe, and for this panel dedicated to pedagogical matters, the PSA seeks proposals. Possible topics include Poe and magazine publishing; Poe's topical humor; antebellum responses to Poe's writings; nationalism and Poe; nineteenth-century science in the works of Poe; mourning and death in Poe's America; Poe and popular song; Poe the reviewer; and criminality in the world of Poe. Other relevant topics are, of course, welcome.

I am seeking manuscripts to complete an edited collection, Toward an Ecosomatic Paradigm: Disability and the Environment in American Literature, which is focused on the intersection between disability studies and ecological criticism. The collection is currently under contract with Lexington Press, and I am looking to add a chapter or two that explores the collection's theme with a particular focus on the intersection between American disability culture (especially literary expressions) and the environmental imagination.
