Andrew Bishop is a PhD Candidate who studies nineteenth- and twentieth-century American literature and culture. His scholarship explores issues related to labor, leisure and nature.
He is working on a dissertation, provisionally titled “The Problems of Leisure in the Industrial-era US,” that analyzes some of the various ways by which nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American authors responded to the crystallization and commercialization of leisure. The project, supported by a Presidential Fellowship, engages with authors like Edward Everett Hale, Herman Melville, Henry Thoreau, Willa Cather and Ernest Hemingway.
Prior to pursuing his PhD, Andrew taught literature and composition courses at Hudson County Community College in Jersey City, NJ, where he also served as Coordinator of Composition II.
