Susan Oliver is Professor in Literature and Deputy Dean of Research in Humanities at the University of Essex. Her book Scott, Byron and the Poetics of Cultural Encounter was awarded the 2007 British Academy’s Rose Mary Crawshay Prize. She has published many articles on Romantic period British and American literature, a number of which take an ecocritical or transatlantic studies perspective. ‘Transatlantic Magazines and the Rise of Environmental Journalism’ was published in The Edinburgh Companion to Atlantic Literary Studies, edited by Leslie Eckel and Clare Elliott (EUP, 2017). Susan edited the 2017 Yearbook of English Studies, which includes her essay ‘Trees, Rivers and Stories: Walter Scott Writing the Land.’ She has just finished a new monograph titled Green Scott, which explores and assesses Walter Scott’s fictional and non-fictional writing of an ecological history of Scotland. Susan has served on the NASSR Advisory Board and the Executive Committee of BARS, as well as on MLA Committees. She is currently conducting research at the Armstrong Browning Library for a further book on 19th-century transatlantic periodical culture.
