Michael A. Elliott (B.A., Amherst, 1992; Ph.D., Columbia, 1998) specializes in the literature and culture of the United States from the mid-nineteenth to early twentieth century, with particular emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches to American cultures and the place of Native Americans in the United States. His undergraduate teaching runs from courses in the nineteenth-century novel to twentieth-century cultural theory. Elliott’s most recent research and graduate teaching revolves around questions of historical representation in the public spaces of the United States.
