JUDITH PASCOE, George Mills Harper Professor of English; Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania; M.A., Syracuse University; B.S., Duke University. She teaches classes on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature and culture, with special attention to collecting history and theory, voice recording, media theory, and absorption. She also teaches classes on prose style, focusing on the sentence and on innovations in critical writing. Pascoe was the director of a 2016-17 NEH Next Generation Humanities Ph.D. Planning Grant aimed at integrating rhetorical artfulness, digital humanities literacy, and flexible career preparation.

The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, an American Council of Learned Societies Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship, and a Fulbright Japan Lecturing Award, Pascoe has written about theatrical self-representation in the 1790s (Romantic Theatricality [Cornell UP, 1996]) and about romantic-era collectors (The Hummingbird Cabinet [Cornell UP, 2006]). Her third book, The Sarah Siddons Audio Files:Romanticism and the Lost Voice (U of Michigan P, 2011), was the recipient of the Barnard Hewitt Award for Outstanding Research in Theatre History. In On the Bullet Train with Emily Brontė: Wuthering Heights in Japan (U of Michigan, 2017), Pascoe writes about the Japanese popularization and adaptation of Emily Brontė's masterwork, and also about intellectual mastery, foreign language learning, and literary longing.
