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 (U of Nebraska P, 2014). Her current book project, Napoleonic Codes in Nineteenth-Century America, offers an alternative history of the American political imagination in the nineteenth century, recovering the close, but often ignored, relationship between democracy and tyranny. In addition to these books, Duquette has published articles on a wide range of subjects; amongst the most recent examples 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. Beginning in 2017, Duquette will be one of the two new Co-Editors of J19: The Journal of Nineteenth-Century Americanists.
