Starting today, Rivka Maizlish will be joining us as our regular Wednesday blogger. Originally from Texas and a graduate of Brandeis University, Rivka is currently a graduate student at UW Madison, where she is currently working on canon formation of the “American Renaissance,” both as a cultural and political project of scholars in the 1930s and 1940s, and as a literary project of American Romantic writers in the 1830s and 1840s. More broadly, her interests include political thought, American literature, and the philosophy of history. She’s already familiar to readers of this blog as a guest poster. Please join me in welcoming her to the masthead!
