Editor for U.S. History, Literary Studies, Religion
“I am acquiring books in religion, literature, and U.S. history and culture. 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 translations, anthologies, and collected/selected editions. Recently, I have signed books on the role of nostalgia in Atlantic world empire-building; the political theory of the American Populist movement; early modern Asian migration and displacement to the Spanish Americas; the history of the Black Atlantic press sphere in the era of decolonization; and the politics of contemporary Russophone avant-garde poetry.
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.”
