I’m Kristin Grogan, an academic and writer based in Cambridge, where I am currently a Junior Research Fellow in English at St. Catharine’s College.
My research encompasses the fields of American literature, poetry and poetics, and literary modernism. I am particularly interested in the social and political forces that shape the writing and reading of poetry, from the nineteenth century to the present day – my DPhil dissertation looked at modernist poetry and theories of labour, and my current project is on the links between American poetry and anarchism.
I completed my DPhil at the University of Oxford in 2018. Before that I studied for my BA and MA at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
