Farewell Editorial

Dear colleagues and friends,

It has been a tremendous pleasure to serve as the NASSR Graduate Student Caucus Blog editor since the Autumn of 2014. I have been privileged to read the work of many wonderful writers, who have each lent their distinctive approach to the study of Romanticism. We have been lucky to have had a Poet and an Artist in Residence, an art historian with a specialization in ecological criticism, Keatsians, Goths, Austen experts, literary scholars from graduate programs across the United States, Canada, and Europe, and many fabulous guest writers who work in nineteenth-century studies. To each of you, thank you for your contributions. I hope you will continue writing for the NGSC in future, and I look forward to seeing many of you at NASSR in Berkeley this summer.

At the end of this month, after defending my dissertation, I will be moving on to a postdoctoral fellowship at the Society of Fellows in the Humanities at Columbia University.  I will not be able to continue as the Managing Editor of the NGSC Blog for the very simple reason that, very soon, I will (I hope!) no longer be a graduate student.

I am delighted to announce that Caroline Winter (PhD Candidate, University of Victoria, Canada) will be assuming the NGSC Blog’s editorial mantle. Caroline is an experienced NGSC writer and DH expert, and she will make an outstanding editor. (I knew she was up for the job when I saw her Twitter handle — @editrixcaroline). I’ll let Caroline introduce herself, but in the meantime, I want to extend her a very warm welcome in her new position as editor.

Finally, to our readers: we appreciate so much that you regularly peruse and comment on the work of the NGSC bloggers. You make thinking and writing about Romanticism worthwhile.

Arden
