Professor Misty Krueger teaches at the University of Maine at Farmington. Her research focus is on Jane Austen and other long eighteenth-century women writers.; she is currently editing a collection of essays entitled Transatlantic Women Travelers: 1688-1843. She is also working on a monograph about Jane Austen’s juvenilia, which lead her to visit England in July and August 2017.
As the Jane Austen Society of North America’s International Visitor, Professor Krueger conducted research at the Chawton House Library, Jane Austen’s House Museum, and the Hampshire Records Office. She visited sites and many of the bicentenary exhibits as a part of my research, and spent her time in England to prepare for a future study abroad course, titled “Jane Austen in England.”
Professor Krueger has published articles and essays on Austen’s Northanger Abbey, History of England, Mansfield Park, Sense and Sensibility, and an adaptation of Sense and Sensibility. Additional publications address Shakespearean adaptation, Restoration and 18th-century drama, Romantic literature, and literary pedagogy. In her spare time, she enjoys blogging and playing tabletop games.
