Dr. Emily Stanback
Emily B. Stanback works at the intersections of British Romantic literature, disability studies, and the histories of medicine and science. Her book, The Wordsworth-Coleridge Circle and the Aesthetics of Disability (Palgrave Macmillan, November 2017) argues for the importance of disability to authors of the Wordsworth-Coleridge circle. By examining texts in a variety of genres―ranging from self-experimental medical texts to lyric poetry to metaphysical essays―the book demonstrates the extent to which non-normative embodiment was central to Romantic-era thought and Romantic-era aesthetics. She has published several academic essays, and is co-curator of The Gravestone Project, a digital humanities project that explores eighteenth- and nineteenth-century graveyard cultures in the United Kingdom and the United States, and co-founder of The Keats Letters Project, which publishes critical and creative responses to the letters of poet John Keats.
