Mollie Barnes is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English, Theater, and Liberal Studies at the University of South Carolina Beaufort. She specializes in nineteenth-century transatlanticism. Her current book project—“Unifying Ambivalence: Transatlantic Histories, Italian Temporalities”—studies “problem” texts written by Anglo-American expatriates during the Risorgimento and the Unification of Italy. “Unifying Ambivalence” argues that Anglo-American writers’ complex representations of revolutionary and post-revolutionary Italy transform not only our understanding of historiography, temporality, and nationhood in literary texts, but also our very reading practices within nineteenth-century scholarship.
