Professional Bio

As a graduate student in the field of nineteenth-century American literature, Andrew's work examines how theories of democracy in fictional and non-fictional texts of this period are informed, challenged, or shaped by bodies deemed aberrant--whether through disability, deformity, addiction, chronic illness, or other bodily categories of social exclusion. He specializes in democracy theory, disability studies, crip theory, antebellum reform movements, African American literature, and print culture.
