Graduate Research Assistant

Kelsey McQueen is a second-year PhD student in Park Hall, a graduate research assistant, and a graduate teaching assistant. She specializes in nineteenth-century American literature. Her current research focuses on the clusters of poetry Walt Whitman wrote at the end of his life: Sands at Seventy (1888) and Good-Bye My Fancy (1891). She is interested in the relationship between these late clusters and Whitman's seminal Drum-Taps, as they are contained and arranged in the so-called "deathbed edition" of Leaves of Grass (1891-1892). Her teaching centers around writing which emerged from the American Civil War.
