Editor for U.S. History, Literary Studies, Religion
I am acquiring books in American history, culture, literature, and religion. While I range widely in terms of period and subfield, I am especially interested in books that reach across disciplines and join surprising arguments with compelling narratives. In literary studies, I also welcome submissions for new anthologies, translations, and collected/selected editions. Recently, I have signed books on the politics of Christian conversion in colonial India; the history of Black opera culture under Jim Crow; and the role of nostalgia in Atlantic world empire-building. I also manage two series at HUP: the I Tatti Studies in Italian Renaissance History, published in collaboration with the Villa I Tatti; and Harvard Historical Studies, published in collaboration with the Harvard History Department. Prior to my work as an editor, I completed my Ph.D. in English with a focus on nineteenth-century American literature.
