Lindsey Eckert

Assistant Professor

Ph.D., University of Toronto


British Romanticism, Book History, and Digital Humanities


Lindsey Eckert specializes in British Romanticism, Book History, and Digital Humanities.  She received her PhD in English and Book History at the University of Toronto. She holds a Masters from the University of Cambridge and a BA from Kenyon College. She is currently working on a book project that explores how the cultural value of familiarity shaped the production and reception of semi-autobiographical literature in the Romantic period.

Dr. Eckert’s research interests in Book History are matched by a commitment to Digital Humanities. She served as a Teaching Fellow at Toronto’s historic Massey College Letterpress Print Shop where she worked with nineteenth-century iron handpresses. She has also given talks about metadata standards and the relationship between the history and future of the book at national conferences.

She has been nominated for GSU’s Outstanding Teaching award and was the recipient of the North American Society for the Study of Romanticism and Romantic Circles Pedagogy Prize.
