Joshua King is Associate Professor of English at Baylor University and Margarett Root Brown Chair at Baylor’s Armstrong Browning Library.  He is author of Imagined Spiritual Communities in Britain’s Age of Print (Ohio State 2015) and has published numerous articles and essays on poetics, religion, print culture, and, more recently, ecotheological and environmental perspectives in the works of authors such as William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, John Keble, John Henry Newman, Alfred Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Matthew Arnold, Christina Rossetti, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, among several others.  He has co-edited Constructing Nineteenth-Century Religion: Literary, Historical, and Religious Studies in Dialogue (Ohio State, May 2019).  His new book project, The Body of Christ, the Body of the Earth: Poetry, Ecology, and Christology, shows how nineteenth-century British poets developed ecological visions by diversely reaffirming the participation of all creatures in God through Christ.
