Casie LeGette (PhD, University of Michigan, 2010) specializes in Romantic Literature, but her research and teaching interests also extend forward into the 19th century. Her interests include poetics, radical politics, periodical culture, gender studies, social history, and the rise of the novel.  Her article on prison poetry appeared in Nineteenth-century Literature, and an article on Caleb Williams and Chartism was published in Romanticism. Her book, Remaking Romanticism: the Radical Politics of the Excerpt (Palgrave 2017) argues that radical editors and publishers transformed literary history, hauling the texts of the recent past directly into the present and undoing literary chronology in the service of political change.
