Jared Richman

Associate Professor

Jared S. Richman received his MA from the University of York (UK) and his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. His teaching and research centers on the literature and culture of Britain’s Long Eighteenth Century (1660-1832). He teaches courses on satire, British Romanticism, radicalism, the Gothic tradition, Atlantic studies, and comics and graphic narrative. Professor Richman’s work has appeared in such journals as European Romantic Review, Eighteenth-Century Studies, and Eighteenth Century Theory and Interpretation. He has published on the works of William Blake, the fiction of Charlotte Smith, and the poetry of Anna Seward. He is currently finishing a manuscript entitled “Transatlantic Realms”: British Romanticism and the Idea of America, 1780-1832. Professor Richman’s research has been supported by fellowships from the Library of Congress, the Lewis Walpole Library, the Pew Charitable Trusts, the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and most recently by the Huntington Library. His latest project traces the relationship between nascent elocutionary theories of the Enlightenment and disability in Anglo-American culture.
