I’m professor and chair of the English Department at Lehigh University, where I teach courses about American literature and digital humanities. I’ve published books and essays on the poet Walt Whitman in a number of scholarly venues, and I am writing the manuscript for a book titled Whitman’s Poe: A Study of Literary Networks in Bohemian New York.

At Lehigh, I’ve served as the director of the American Studies program, the English undergraduate major, and the Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative. I’m currently the chair of the Modern Language Association’s Forum on the Teaching of Literature, and I’ve served in various capacities for C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists, Commonplace: The Journal of Early American Life, and the Walt Whitman Initiative.
