At the crossroads of poetry and the history of literary criticism, Anahid Nersessian's work is both politically engaged and philosophically informed. An expert in the Romantic Period in Britain and Europe, she has written on a wide variety of subjects, from twenty-first century visual art to the use of scientific categories like "explanation" in the humanities. Her book, Keats's Odes: A Lover's Discourse (Verso, 2022; U of Chicago Press, 2021) is a collection of short, experimental essays that merge the critical with the intimate, while her two academic monographs, The Calamity Form: On Poetry and Social Life (Chicago, 2020) and Utopia, Limited: Romanticism and Adjustment (Harvard UP, 2015), are about poetry's response to economic and environmental collapse. She has published widely in venues such as The New York Review of Books, New Left Review, n+1, and The Paris Review as well as in scholarly journals including Critical InquiryPMLAELHEuropean Romantic ReviewMLQNew Literary History, and Studies in Romanticism. A partial list of her essays and articles can be found here.
