Jared Richman

Assistant Professor

I received my MA from the University of York (UK) and my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. My teaching and research centers on the literature and culture of Britain’s Long Eighteenth Century (1660-1832). I teach courses on satire, British Romanticism, radicalism, the Gothic tradition, Atlantic studies, and comics and graphic narrative. I have published on the poetry and art of William Blake and the fiction of Charlotte Smith, and I am currently finishing a manuscript entitled “Transatlantic Realms”: British Romanticism and the Idea of America, 1780-1832. Recently, I have been working on a new project that traces the relationship between nascent elocutionary theories of the Enlightenment and disability in Anglo-American culture. In addition to my teaching and research, I serve as Faculty Director of the College Writing Program.
