A Critical Edition of the Diary of Harry Watkins, 19th-Century American Actor

Preparation of a scholarly edition of the diary of 19th-century American actor Harry Watkins (1825-1894).

This grant will support the creation of a critical edition of the diary of nineteenth-century American actor Harry Watkins. Written from 1845-1860, it is the only known diary of its size and scope by an American actor during the decade prior to the Civil War. The diary documents performances by famous actors, political events, business transactions, and personal matters, and our edition will provide researchers, teachers, and general readers interested in nineteenth-century US entertainment, politics, economics, and culture an accurate and accessible edition of this unique diary. During the award period, I will prepare six chapters of the printed edition according to our style guide. I will write annotations for basic information needed to understand the diary’s content (e.g., names, places, and terms) and form (e.g., noting redacted and amended text), drawing upon research conducted at the Harvard Theatre Collection and New York Public Library.

Epic after Evolution: Modernism's National Narratives

Research and writing leading to publication of a book on selected works of early 20th-century modernist prose and their relationship to national identity, treating examples in English, Portuguese, and Czech.

Epic after Evolution is a book project that tells the history of the modernist epic from 1900 to 1930. Although recent work in transnational modernist studies suggests that modernism can be understood as a global phenomenon, my book points out that many of the founding narratives of modernist prose are nation-specific. Studying five such texts in detail, Epic after Evolution places modernist epic back into its local contexts. In doing so, however, it also proposes a more general common feature of the genre: namely that modernist national epics of this period all explore alternatives to biological, racial, or ethnic modes of defining and narrating nationality. Discussing the ramifications of this finding, my book models a way of studying modernist epic within and without national canons. During the period of my grant, I will complete two chapters for this book and submit them both to peer-reviewed journals.
