Rachel Crawford


Rachel Crawford received her PhD from the University of Washington in 1989. She teaches the British Long Eighteenth Century, with emphasis on the Romantic decades; Gender and Sexualities; and Critical Analysis, a departmental Methods course. Her publications include articles, book chapters, and collaborative editorial work, while her book, a monograph on British poetry and landscape (Cambridge 2002), won the National Jesuit Award; her current book project focuses on the potential role of cartographic analysis in literature. Her primary vision, however, is for the fullest potential in student-teacher relationships, especially to enable students to understand the meaning of the scholarly life.
