Elizabeth Duquette

Elizabeth Duquette received her B.A. in Philosophy from Dartmouth College and her Ph.D. in American Literature from New York University. Her teaching interests include nineteenth-century American literature, transatlantic literary culture, intellectual history, and critical theory. 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 (University of Nebraska Press, 2014). Her current book project, Napoleonic Codes in Nineteenth-Century America, explores how nineteenth-century thinkers theorized modes of identification and recognition through the constant recirculation of the century's most famous man. In addition to these books, Duquette has published a number of articles, including "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.
