About the Author

Lisa Mendelman is an Assistant Professor of English at Menlo College. She researches and teaches at the intersections of science and affect in American literature since 1865. Her writing has appeared or is forthcoming in American Literary History, Modernism/modernity, Arizona Quarterly, and Modern Fiction Studies.


this collection provokes thought about the scope of diverse female authors, irony, sentimentalism, modernism, femininity and affect studies. Modern Sentimentalism encourages its readers to reconsider the value and influence of pre-modernist conventions and practices, which may serve as important clues to the analysis of modern works. * Jun Qiang, University of York, The Modernist Review *
