Jared Richman

Assistant Professor

Jared 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. 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. His 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, and the Folger Shakespeare Library. Recently, he has been working on a new project that traces the relationship between nascent elocutionary theories of the Enlightenment and disability in Anglo-American culture.
