Profile

Emily Kobayashi received her PhD from LSU in August 2016. She specializes in nineteenth-century British literature, but her studies are very much rooted in Romantic poetry. Her current book project is a monograph on Lord Byron’s writing, with the working title of Placing Byronic Sexuality. She hopes to complete projects that reach forward to Mark Twain, and to Lafcadio Hearn at the turn of the nineteenth century. Again, in relation to the Romantics, she would like to reach back to Edmund Burke and company in the eighteenth century. She has enjoyed teaching college composition and / or introduction to literary forms at several universities in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and in the Washington D.C. area. At Auburn she has been teaching Composition I and II, and looks forward to teaching ENGL 2240, “British Literature After 1789.”
