At the crossroads between 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 upcoming book, Keats's Odes: A Lover's Discourse (February 2021) is a collection of short, experimental essays that merge the critical with the intimate, while her first two academic monographs, Utopia, Limited: Romanticism and Adjustment (2015) and The Calamity Form: On Poetry and Social Life (2020) are about poetry's response to the twin tragedies of industrial capitalism and environmental collapse. She has published widely in scholarly journals including Critical InquiryPMLAELH, and New Literary History, and in popular venues like the Los Angeles Review of Books. Her essays and articles can be accessed here.
