Welcome! My name is Amy Huseby, and this is my professional website. Glad you found your way here! Currently, I am a full-time Instructor in Victorian Literature at Florida International University. I earned my Ph.D. in English Language and Literature (with an interdisciplinary minor in the History of Science and Critical Theory) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017 under the direction of Caroline Levine. My research focuses on the relationship between British literature of the long nineteenth century and the representational capacity of numbers, with particular attention to questions of gender and sexuality, imperialism, political economy, and the emerging social sciences. My research and teaching interests more broadly include poetry, prosody, and poetics of the long nineteenth century; literature and science; biopolitics, statistics, and political economy; new formalism; aesthetics and politics; literature and religion; narrative theory and genre studies. If you share these interests, want to talk about teaching ideas, or have questions about courses at FIU, you can reach me at akhuseby5 [at] gmail [dot] com or at ahuseby [at] fiu [dot] edu.
All the best,
