As the accompanying pages explain, my main project while I’m here at Duke is an interactive map of Edith Wharton’s New York, based on The Age of Innocence.
This link takes you a mini-version I created on Timemapper.
I’m Meredith Goldsmith and welcome to my WordPress site. I’m a scholar and teacher of late nineteenth-century American literature. I teach at Ursinus College, a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania; in 2015-2016, I serve as a Humanities Writ Large Fellow at Duke University. My scholarship is mostly on late nineteenth-century women writers and I’ve published in Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers, American Literary Realism, modern fiction studies, and other journals; I also currently serve as editor of the Edith Wharton Review. My projects while at Duke synthesize my scholarly and pedagogical interests. Please watch this for comments on literature, mapping, digital humanities, travel, and life in Durham NC.
