ABBY L. GOODE … is an assistant professor of English at Plymouth State University, where she teaches courses in American literature, critical theory, wilderness literature, and food studies. Currently, she is writing a book about the history of sustainability, agriculture, and population control in American literature. Her research has appeared in venues such as Early American Literature, Studies in American Fiction, and American Studies in Scandinavia. Her work has been supported by fellowships from the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, the American Antiquarian Society, and the First Book Institute at the Center for American Literary Studies at Pennsylvania State University.

TOBIAS HUTTNER … is a PhD candidate ('20) in English at Johns Hopkins University. He specializes in twentieth- and twenty-first century American literary studies and poetry and poetics, especially as understood through the perspectives of the history of capitalism, critical race studies, and aesthetic theory. His dissertation shows how US poets have reimagined the scope and parameters of the poetic occasion in order to formalize the uneven dynamics of capitalist development across the long twentieth century.

LAURA KOROBKIN … is an associate professor of English at Boston University, where she teaches courses in American literature focusing on fiction, especially Stowe and other women authors, and intersections of law and narrative. Her essays have appeared in American Literature, Early American Literature, Novel, ELH, Legacy, Nineteenth-Century Literature, Studies in American Fiction, and Yale Journal of Law and the Humanities, and have been reprinted in Norton Critical Editions of Wieland (2010) and The Scarlet Letter (2005). She is also author of Criminal Conversations: Sentimentality and Nineteenth-Century Legal Stories of Adultery (Columbia UP, 1998).

SCOTT M. REZNICK … is a visiting assistant professor of American literature at Boston College. His research and teaching focus on the intersections between literature and political thought. He has published essays in Early American Literature and American Political Thought. His current book project, "'The Vision of Principles': Political Liberalism and the Rise of the American Literary Romantic Tradition," explores the interconnections between Romanticism and liberal thought in the ways that US writers routinely responded to profound political conflict during the early national and antebellum eras by interrogating the nature of moral belief.
