Rachel Galvin is an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow at the Humanities Center of The Johns Hopkins University. She holds a PhD in Comparative Literature from Princeton University, where her dissertation won the Sidonie Clauss Memorial Dissertation Prize. Her current book project, a comparative study titled Poetry and the Press in Wartime (1936-1945), argues that print journalism offered an unexpected model for wartime poetry and poetics during the tumultuous period spanning from the Spanish Civil War through World War II. In a second project, Hemispheric Poetics: 20th-Century Poetry of the Americas, Galvin contends that poetry of the long twentieth century must be understood in hemispheric terms. Galvin is studying how poets interpret the idea of “the Americas” as lands and nations, showing that their poetics develop through dialogue across linguistic and geographical distances. Essays are forthcoming in The Blackwell Companion to Translation Studies, Le Magazine littéraire, and the Wallace Stevens Journal.
