ADAMS BOOKLibrary Author Talk
Assistant Professor of English Dr. Amanda Adams
3:30 p.m., Boyd Science Center 336

Dr. Adams’ newest book is Performing Authorship in the Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic Lecture Tour. Expanding our understanding of what it meant to be a 19th-century author,  Dr. Adams takes up the concept of performative, embodied authorship in relationship to the transatlantic lecture tour. She argues that these tours were a central aspect of 19th-century authorship at a time when authors were becoming international celebrities. Spanning the years 1834 to 1904, her book examines the British lecture tours of American authors including Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe and Mark Twain, and the American lecture tours of British writers including Harriet Martineau, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde and Matthew Arnold. In highlighting the wide range of authors who participated in this phenomenon, Dr. Adams makes a case for the lecture tour as a microcosm for 19th-century authorship in all its contradictions and complexity. Dr. Adams joined the faculty at Muskingum in 2010, after teaching at Miami University and Temple University. She has a master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Ph.D. from the University of Oregon. Her specialty is 19th-century literature, with a focus on transatlantic culture and gender.
