Publication Date

Jillmarie Murphy, the William D. Williams Professor of English and director of the Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies program, was recently commissioned to compile a four-volume multidisciplinary collection. “Women and the Environment in the Long Nineteenth Century (1789-1830)" will be published by Routledge for its "Nineteenth-Century Science, Technology, and Medicine" series. Each volume will examine contributions from women through the lens of eco-feminism, new materialism, and post-humanism, and will include queer, black, white, indigenous women, and women of color and their various inquiries into the natural sciences, natural history, medicine, literature, and the arts. Murphy also recently published a book review for the Hawthorne Review 46.2, of Ashley Barnes's “Love and Depth in the American Novel: From Stowe to James.”
