Jessica Roberson is faculty in English at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles, where she teaches and writes about British literature of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, literary form, the history of science and the material culture of the book. Her work has appeared in journals including Victoriographies, Gothic Studies, and Nineteenth-Century Theatre and Film, and she is currently working on a monograph project titled Romanticism and the Making of Media Mortality, supported by an Ahmanson-Getty Postdoctoral Fellowship at UCLA’s Clark Library. Recently, her pedagogical and research interests have converged in the fields of disability studies and maker culture, bringing accessible making to the humanities classroom, and forthcoming work will explore the implications of these practices for Romantic literary study.

Michele Speitz is Associate Professor of English Literature at Furman University and Editor of Romantic Circles Scholarly Editions. Her current book project examines sublime representations of technology in Romantic literature and culture.

Alexander Creighton, a graduate student in English at Harvard University, writes about how ideas of time in novels connect to the cultural and historical contexts in which those novels emerged. His in-progress dissertation, “Fiction’s Metronomes,” thinks about time as it is signified both in language and through novels’ unfolding forms.
