Christopher Donaldson

Research overview

My first degree, in Classics, was from Penn State University. I received my PhD, in Comparative Literature, from Stanford University in 2012 and joined the Spatial Humanities Project in 2013. My research primarily focuses on the literature and culture of the British and European eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with an emphasis on phenomena such as literary tourism and the creation of literary heritage sites. My broader interests include reception theory, the history of the book, and the cultural intersections of poetry and place. I have been a reviewer for the Year’s Work in English Studies, contributing the review of books and articles published on Romantic Poetry, since 2012.
