Friday, March 16, 2018. A19 invites Elizabeth Duquette (Gettysburg College), OdG 163, 2pm-4pm

bMS Am 188 (365), Houghton Library, Harvard University

Elizabeth Duquette’s talk is entitled

“Melville’s The Confidence-Man Between Genres.”

Elizabeth Duquette received her B.A. in Philosophy from Dartmouth College and her Ph.D. in American Literature from New York University.  Her first book–Loyal Subjects: Bonds of Nation, Race, and Allegiance in Nineteenth-Century America (Rutgers UP, 2010)--explored the idea of loyalty in the postbellum United States. With Gettysburg graduate Cheryl Tevlin, she co-edited Elizabeth Stuart Phelps: Selected Tales, Essays, and Poems (U of Nebraska P, 2014). Her current book project, Napoleonic Codes: Tyranny and Ubiquity in the Nineteenth-Century United States, offers an alternative history of the American political imagination in the nineteenth century, recovering the close, but often ignored, relationship between democracy and tyranny.

Amongst Duquette’s most recent  articles are “The Man of the World,” American Literary History 27:4 (2015), 635-664; “The Pleasures of Occasional Vitriol,” J19 3:2 (2015), 220-228; “The Office of The Dead Letter,” Arizona Quarterly 69:4 (2013), 25-58; “Making an Example: American Literature as Philosophy,” The Oxford Handbook of Nineteenth-Century American Literature, ed. Russ Castronovo (Oxford UP, 2012), 343-357; and Pierre‘s Nominal Conversions,” Melville and Aesthetics, eds. Samuel Otter and Geoff Sanborn (Palgrave, 2011), 117-135.

With Stacey Margolis, Elizabeth Duquette edits J19: The Journal of Nineteenth-Century Americanists.

Please note that Elizabeth Duquette will also give a talk on Thursday, March 15, 12-14, OdG 830:  “Afterlives of American Racism”
