Transatlantic studies volume now in production June 13th, 2011

After a couple of weeks of intensive proof-reading, correcting, and indexing, my new book Transatlantic Literary Exchanges (which I co-edited with Julia Wright of Dalhousie University) is in production.  Featuring chapters by authors hailing from Canada, the UK, the USA, and The Netherlands, the book will be published by Ashgate (a British academic press) in August.  I now look forward to immersing myself in my new book project, a study of the literary history of indigenous governance in North America.  (In the nineteenth century, who knew that poetry helped to shape “Indian policy”?  A hint: both white politicians and indigenous people did!  If I could travel back in time, I would love to chat with Chief John Brant of the Mohawks, who in 1822 engaged a London lawyer to reprimand a famous British poet, Thomas Campbell, for libelling his father, Chief Joseph Brant, in a bestselling poem.  My new book will recount this and many other fascinating nineteenth-century stories.)
