Pickford Benjamin


My teaching and writing focuses on American literature and culture of the long nineteenth-century. I am particularly interested in intersections between literature, theology, philosophy, and economic and political theory; the relationship between American and European thought; critical theory (and Marxism in particular) and poetics. My current monograph projects are concerned with the legacies of American Transcendentalism, cultural labor, and the nonexistence of a nineteenth-century American critique of capitalism. I am membership office and sit on the steering committee of the British Association of Nineteenth-Century Americanists (BrANCA)
