Speaker Bio

Shelley AJ Jones is an Associate Professor of English at the University of South Carolina, Palmetto College Columbia. Her research investigates revision, genre theory, and periodical culture in the Romantic period, with a particular emphasis on how popular forms widened access to literature. This emphasis on access made possible by new technology informs her teaching interests as well: creating collaborative environments and communities for distance and online learners. She recently co-edited an edition of Helen Maria Williams Peru and Peruvian Tales for Broadview Press, published articles in Romantic Circles’ Pedagogy Commons and Essays in Romanticism, and has a digital edition of Mary Robinson’s poetry, Lyrical Tales with The Progress of Liberty: Verse Revisions and Periodical Poems, forthcoming at Romantic Circles.
