His essay “Anne Bradstreet’s Ecological Thought” was published in Women’s Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal and his essay “Lydia Sigourney’s Charter Oak ‘Enthusiasm’” is forthcoming in ESQ: A Journal of Nineteenth-Century American Culture and Literature. He was the recipient of a 2018-19 Jay and Deborah Last Fellowship in American Visual Culture from the American Antiquarian Society and is the Massachusetts Historical Society’s 2022-23 Mary B. Wright Fellow in Environmental History. His current book project, Arboreal Poetics: The Language, Materiality, and Politics of Trees in American Poetry, explores the myriad emotions evoked by everyday encounters with trees and investigates the potential of literary and cultural “tree texts” to reshape conventional understandings of early American engagements with the natural world.
