She earned her Ph.D. in English Language and Literature (with an interdisciplinary minor in Critical Theory) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017 under the direction of Caroline Levine.

Her research and teaching interests more broadly include poetry, prosody, and poetics of the long nineteenth century; print culture, the history of the book, and publishing; the history of science; biopolitics, statistics, and the rise of social sciences; and aesthetics and politics. Dr. Huseby’s work has appeared or is forthcoming in Victorian Poetry, Victorian Periodicals Review, Women’s Writing, South Atlantic Review, and several edited collections. Her own poetry has been published and anthologized by the Atlanta Review, Wilderness House Literary Review, and Pearl, among others.
