Evan Gottlieb specializes in British Romanticism and literary theory. He holds the MA and PhD from University at Buffalo, SUNY, and the BA from McMaster University, Canada. He is the author of three books -- Romantic Globalism: British Literature and Modern World Order, 1750-1830 (Ohio State University Press, forthcoming), Walter Scott and Contemporary Theory (Bloomsbury, 2013), and Feeling British: Sympathy and National Identity in Scottish and English Writing, 1707-1832 (Bucknell University Press, 2007) -- and co-editor of two more: Representing Place in British Literature and Culture, 1660-1830: From Local to Global (Ashgate, 2013) and Approaches to Teaching Scott’s Waverley Novels (MLA, 2010). He is currently working on two new books: Romantic Realities: British Romanticism and Speculative Realism (under contract with Edinburgh University Press), and a new Critical Edition of Tobias Smollett’s eighteenth-century comic novel, The Expedition of Humphry Clinker (under contract with WW Norton).  As well as teaching courses on British writing of “the long eighteenth century” (i.e. 1660-1830), Gottlieb regularly teaches classes on literary criticism and theory. He also writes about literature for the Huffington Post, where his blog archive is http://www.huffingtonpost.com/evan-gottlieb/.
